My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Arizona
My husband had worked for a company for a year and 4 months before they asked him to sign a non-compete agreement. He did not receive anything extra for signing this agreement (no promotion, no raise). The non-compete says that he can not work within a 500 mile radius of the company doing the same thing he does now (he sales industrial adhesives & other items like that) and its for 2 years after termination. He found out that he is the only person they had sign the agreement. There are 4 other sales guys and they know the exact same things as my husband. So any of the other sales guys can leave and go to a competitor without a problem. Now one of their competitors is wanting my husband to come work for them and we are trying to figure out if the non-compete agreement would stand up in court. I just want to throw in that my husbands job is in Tucson and we live in Mesa - Over a 125 miles apart. The potential job is up in Phoenix which is less than 15 miles from where we live.
