Non-Compete Question

I signed a non-compete agreement but did not receive a copy of it? Is it still enforceable?

I have only been with this Mortgage Broker for six months, received no training and work on a straight commission basis. I would like to work for a bank. Please advise.

The fact that you were not given a copy should not excuse your need to comply IF the covenant was valid. There are a number of factors to consider before you consider whether a covenant not to compete is valid. I would suggest that you ask for a copy of the agreement and then take it to a lawyer who knows about covenants such as this and get a consultation. If you encounter an objection to being given a copy, tell them that you should be entitled to have a copy of anything you signed -- that you think they would have the same expectation if they signed something.
