  •  Though I think sometimes those agreements (1+ / 0-)

    are on questionable legal ground.  Exactly how enforceable they are and what penalties can occur I think vary from state to state...also I suspect it varies somewhat between industries, and also depending on the wording and extent to which they're trying to lock down future behaviors.  Saying "You can't work in this field anywhere for 10 years" is probably indefensible anywhere, but "You can't work for X set of specific competitors for a year or two might be very defensible.

    Wish we had agreements like that on all politicians...once you've been a congressperson or president you should have a lifetime ban on being a lobbyist (no loopholes).

    Are there any legal types on here that can discuss more thoroughly?
