non compete

Typically, you would know if you signed a non compete. To be valid in Texas, you must be given some sort of consideration for signing it plus it must be reasonable in time, scope and geographic area. The agreement would be similar to other industries. It require you to refrain from competing against the old company for a certain time frame within a certain area. If you would like more info on non competes, see an article on
