Non-Competes in Limbo: What Recruiters Should Watch For

The FCC recently announced the end of non-competes for all employees. Now, the chances of this going through are pretty slim. The US Chamber of Commerce filed a lawsuit in Texas less than 24 hours after the announcement, and while we won’t have the outcome of that lawsuit for a long time, it’s doubtful that the result will be a complete ban on non-compete agreements.

  1. There are companies in my area (Huntsville Alabama) that are notorious for their non-competes. Some are known to present them after 1 year of service, once they are sure they want to keep you, they make sure you can’t leave. It’s pretty gross and luckily 1 of the worst recently went out of business. Networking is SO important! Know people in your industry and know their working conditions! FWIW – the terrible company also stated their noncompete was covered by their NDA so employees couldn’t talk about it!
