I was reading up a bit on non-compete clauses and how they are difficult to enforce in CA but I was just curious if any of you guys out there have come across a similar situation before. Thanks for any help.
i've never actually experienced nor signed one, however
in theory, i wouldn't take it very seriously.
they have to actively prosecute you.....aka time and money.....for a part-time position? meh
if you were an executive for years, i'd take it seriously.
a lot of the business world is monkey see, monkey do....a lot of people are pretending and mocking what they've seen in the workplace......hence a part-time job having a non-comp clause.
also when you see "assistant needed, PHD preferred" they have no idea what they're doing, they're copying what they see as "success"
