Answer to was terminated from a company that I was with for 13 years. Was providing me a severance pay for 13 weeks. However there was a non-compete for 2 years could not work for another company in the same industry. Never worked for another company in same industYou should contact an employment lawyer and sit down with that lawyer *in person* with any employment agreements and any correspondence you've received from your former employer *in hand* and that attorney can advise you what the best course of conduct is. Non-compete provisions can be enforced, even when in severance agreements, but the non-payment of the amount of the severance package may also work to invalidate the agreement. As with many things legal, the answer is "it depends," and you should not rely upon (nor expect) legal advice over the internet.

Answer to Am I eligible for unemployment?No. Voluntary quit does not entitle you to unemployment benefits. Unemployment compensation law states that persons are entitled to benefits who become unemployed "through no fault of their own".

You should be sure, however, that you and your former coworkers hire a lawyer and firm which has already handled FLSA and wage and hour cases.

The failure to promote is equally actionable.
Your friend should consult with a Pennsylvania employment attorney to assess *all* of the facts of his or her case, because it's impossible to diagnose these situations adequately over the web, nor is an attorney permitted to "give legal advice" via the web to a non-client.

It should be noted, however, that your former employer (that is, whichever one you elect to be "former") may be able to prevent you from using "trade secrets" acquired during your prior employment. You should check with an employment lawyer about your specific plans before you commit yourself to any path.
