non compete agreement after employment


I am in sales and marketing. I have brought some accounts into my customer base from previous experiences and I have developed some new customers no doubt with this employer. The present company I am with has asked many of us recently to sign a non compete and in my case years after I have been employed. If we don't we are not working anymore. I thought it was signing under duress but apparently NJ sees that a bit different.

Willing to meet and pay for help but just a few words here prior would help me decide.

Thank you!

Non-compete agreements are a growing problem. As you said, they are generally enforceable in New Jersey even when the employees have no choice but to sign them or lose their jobs.

My firm advises employees about non-compete agreements. I would be happy to schedule a consultation with you. Please call my office at 201 487-2700.
