I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

Whether a non-compete is enforceable depends upon a few different things:

1. What were the terms of the non-compete with Company A?

2. Was the agreement something you signed when you first accepted the job?

3. What type of work do you do?

4. What state do you live in?

1. Terms are as stated in the query that I would not do business with any competition for 1year.
2. Yes I signed
