People call our office and say “I am not worried because I know my non-compete can’t be enforced.”
Seriously? Where did you hear that? (I want to ask).
Finally, I found the source of this terrible and incorrect rumor. The internet.
I just read an article purporting to give legal advice on non-competes and the author (a self proclaimed motivational speaker) writes “One interesting thing to note: noncompete agreements are not enforceable against certain “professionals,” like doctors, CPAs, and lawyers.”
I hate to call you out sir, but what you have written is absoluitely not true. I would do some more research before making such an incorrect statement.
To read about how enforceable non-competes are against virginia doctors, please read an article Dan and I finished today, based on his numerous blog posts.
YIKES – now I know where people are getting these ideas and claiming them to be true.
Please don’t believe everything you read – call a professional before you bank on internet advice.
