non-compete and material change to employment

I have a question about a non-complete clause in an employment agreement I signed. The agreement stated that I will not directly compete for a period of 3 years following termination of employment. One year into my employment, my hours and salary were reduced. I was not asked to sign a new agreement and was terminated the following year. Am I still bound by the terms of the original agreement or does the material change to my employment void the original employment agreement?

You should consult with an employment attorney in your area. An argument could be made that there was a failure of consideration for the non-compete when your employer cut your pay; however, before accepting a job that might violate your non-compete provision you need to consult with an employment attorney.
