Oh wait, sorry. That is how you get rid of hiccups, not employment contracts.
How you make a non-compete contract “void” in Virginia is much more simple.
(a) get your employer to agree the contract is void – or get a release from its terms.
(b) ask a Virginia judge to hold the contract is unreasonable, unenforceable and therefore void under Virginia law.
Sounds easy, right?
It’s not. Did you hear me? NOT EASY.
Option (a) usually requires out outlay of cash money.
Option (b) usually requires more cash money for the lawyers, time because Virginia judges can’t decide on these things right away, stamina because the process is exhausting, and patience because if you don’t get the answer you want, you have spent all this time and money in court and lost.
Makes hiccups sound fun, eh?
