No behavior is easier to justify than that which is in one's own best interests.
Jimmy John's was forcing its employees to sign non-competes. You going to pretend they're pumping out some incredible IP folding them sandwiches or admit it's being abused? Maybe those Jimmy John's employees were just scamming sandwich IP to make the big bucks as a sandwich artist at one of their competitors, eh?Non-competes are very important legal instruments to protect company IP. Although I know you don't understand the importance of IP or think it important, so that's probably part of the issue here.
P.S. Telling me that Commiefornia does something isn't a good way to convince me it's a good idea.
What of value did you receive in exchange for signing this contract? Sounds like nothing other than pay. If so, that sounds like indentured servitude.The Company I work for is based in Massachusetts, I'm currently based in Illinois. I've been with the company for under a year and have not received any type ratings or new certificates through the company. The opportunity would provide pay me twice as much as I do now, and would offer my young and growing family stability instead of the possibility of moving every 6 months. And my time on my contract doesn't start until I make Captain, and then the duration is 18 months. I've signed the contract already, or else I would not be employed at this company, but the time frame has not even begun.
True. I've seen both sides of the issue. Problem is, in most cases, the employer has the power to impose conditions. The applicant is just looking for a job.What if I told you that can be read from both sides of this?
LOL! My first thought too. But the problem is various definitions of "one's own best interest."Okay, Ayn.
