    Default Can I Get Out of My Non Compete

    My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Arkansas

    Valid reason to get out of my non compete?
    I have workded for the same company for about 20 years. Recently the company was was sold and I along with it. I was told from the begging from the buyers how "nothing would change for me that would affect me negatively". I was told at the purchase that people who are remaining with the company would have to sign a non compete agreement. Since then my insurance has went up and the coverage is worse, before I was getting 15% of the profit I made and now its been reduced to 10%. Also I was always provided a truck and now I am being charged 500/month out of my bonus to cover it. I used to get paid my overtime and that has been reduced also.

    Don't know. I have no idea what your non-compete says to whether the reasons for separation making any difference on the enforceability of the non-compete.

    You posted this as a collective bargaining issue. If this is in your union contract, I wouldn't expect it to be easy to escape.

    Show a copy of the non-compete to an employment law attorney. That's the only way you're going to know if it's an enforceable agreement. It all depends on the specifics of the agreement and the relevant case law in your State.

    If we're actually talking about collective bargaining, talk to your union rep.
