I live in Pa. Is there a specific place to read up on non compete laws -as you note?
This would be Pa. specific. all operations and employees would be in Pa.
Yes, My company is in Pa. The employees I want to hire are from a Pa company. They signed non competes with the other company - which is located in Pa.
Sorry for the confusion
Still thinking of a way to circumvent a non compete. If the employee I want to work with is under a non compete for working for similar business and mine is a similar business Here is what I want to do:
I want that employee to make his book of business contacts available to me or one of my employees. We would solicate all business from that book of business, without the person being involved with our efforts. I would have that employee start an LLC as a billing company. We would submit all orders to that persons new billing company and pay them a percentage of all orders collected.
