I am in a niche industry and my Dallas based company recently got bought. The purchaser is based and incorporated in Ohio.
The new company wants us to sign a non-compete agreement in which we cannot go to work for any competitor (very broadly defined) for 12 months after separation be it voluntary or involuntary.
If we do not sign this non-compete agreement our employment will be terminated effective 9/9.
Is this enforceable in Texas, a right to work state?
The new company is incorporated in Ohio and states any disputes will be resolved in accordance with Ohio laws.
