Operating Agreement Non-compete clause

Greetings, I need HELP!
I work for the devil and I need to get out...last week my boss actually fired me for a whole 20 minutes before he asked me to get back to work. I am very tired of the verbal abuse and I need to find another job. I signed an operating agreement when I accepted 5% ownership of the company. Within the operating agreement there is non-compete verbage. However; it states no time frame and no geographic area...PLEASE ADVISE?

Non-compete issues are fact driven

In order to advise you in exiting your current employment we need to know:

1. the language of the non-competition agreement;
2. the business of your current employer to see what legitimate interest, if any, it has in enforcing a non-compete and
3. the nature of your next employment.

With that information, we can help. However, that is more than we can handle over the Ask MEL forum. Therefore, I suggest a consultation. We offer a consultation for $200. Please call Jenny at 330.665.5445, ext. 0 to get on my calendar if you would like a consultation.

Best regards,
