Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Welcome to JA and thank you for your question. I will be the Attorney that will be assisting you.
Pursuant to the terms of service for this site the Attorneys are not permitted to enter into Attorney/Client relationships with customers of the site. That being said we can do everything on our power to assist you in getting headed in the right direction and receiving the assistance you need. Can you tell me where are located so I can provide a link for Attorneys in your area that provide FREE consultations?
Non compete restrictions are common. They just need to be reasonable. What are the other restrictions?
Is it possible for you to attach the contract?
When contract terms are unreasonable and an employee wants to terminate the employment agreement it is best to have a local attorney assist you. Many provide FREE consultations and can evaluate the situation very quickly. You stated you are in Illinois, can you tell me where the company is located in New Jersey?
Please do not hesitate to ask me additional questions that you may have with regard to this matter.
If you would be kind enough to rate my service positively so I will receive credit for my time and work I would appreciate it.
