I work in an urgent care in Kansas. I have a non-compete

Customer Question

I work in an urgent care in Kansas. I have a non-compete clause in my contract that states I cannot work within 35 air miles of the facility for 12 months. I have the opportunity to go to work at another clinic 26 miles away in a larger town in primary care. The new opportunity is a loan repayment site whereas my current position is not, thus the reason for my desire to change jobs. Should I be concerned that they will sue me if I take the new job?

I would not be concerned for the following reasons:

1. a lawsuit is expensive and therefore normally not pursued.

2. You are not taking business away

3. the position is different.

4. courts normally dont enforce non competes as overly burdensome

5. no harm to the company.
