Almost always, non-compete agreements are unenforceable in California. This means that the agreement cannot be enforced in court, but it does not automatically mean the agreement is automatically void.

Your situation is a bit complicated and is more likely to depend on the law of Washington than on California law. You should re-post your question in the Washington employment law forum.
