if you have been required to sign a noncompete agreement, in exchange for compensation in the form of severance, it may or may not be enforceable under california law. you need to have the severance agreement reviewed by an attorney skilled in employment law. you may find one in your area at the california employment lawyers association's website, www.celaweb.org.
