Hey Receuiters. Have you ever received a full time job offer with an employment contract that included a 1 year non compete clause in your specific industry? I would be joining a late stage start up and an at will employee with no severance package. I understand the non solicitation clause and that part makes sense. However, limiting my future employer options for a year seems harsh. I live in NY which is a right to work state. Thoughts?

Yes, but they are generally not enforceable.

Thanks everyone. I did reach out to inquire about them removing. Will see on Monday if they agree

Non-competes are very common in some fields but almost never enforced unless the person does something that is clearly over the line like stealing information in digital format, poaching clients/candidates/employees, etc.

Very common in the NY area.

I’m in NY and have never seen. I work for a major global payment company and we don’t do that for experienced hires

As a follow up, was able to negotiate out of the non compete
