I am a Speech-Language pathologist in California. From December 2012 to June 2013 I worked a part-time school speech therapist-independent contractor for a small company. My employment offer was made contingent upon my signing a Non-Solicitation agreement, which prohibited me from working for the same school district directly for 1 year following my termination “unless an equitable arrangement is made and agreed on by both parties such as a “buy out” of contract by school district”. My contract ended in June 2013, and the company I worked for did not have any other job opportunities for me. Now, there is a full time position open in this district I want to apply for. Can my contract be enforceable if I violate the non-compete agreement? Thank you,

Need to have an attorney review the contract to give you advise. The contract wording is very important.
