Thank you for your follow-up.A few thoughts that may help. The first is compensation. That is the largest weakness. If you were not compensated for signing this (and claiming that the bargained for exchange is the continuous employment when you were already employed is not really valid because you did not get an additional benefit you didn't already possess). That by itself permits you to claim that the agreement is void since there was not 'bargained for exchange' in benefits--the employer received a benefit but you did not. The rest of the agreement appears reasonable and something the courts would uphold, but the lack of even nominal consideration of $1 appears to make this an invalid agreement.Good luck.
My thoughts as well, but needed confirmation. Thanks!
