I am talking with my company about a layoff. package. There is a non compete clause in my contract, if my company wants to enforce a non compete, should they pay me? The reason is that my employment would be limited if they try to enforce that

Of course - though actual non competes are quite hard to enforce, esp in a layoff setting.

Depending on the state, the non-compete may not even be enforceable. Enforceability may also depend on how broad it is (time, geographic scope, industry, etc.). If you're considering signing a severance package, strongly encourage you to pay a lawyer for a couple of hours of their time to review and talk you through any considerations.

To reiterate what others have said, non-compete agreements are historically hard to enforce. And, in my experience, almost never enforced.

In 20 years of working in Tech, I've only seen non-competes enforced in one case. A group of former employees started their own company making a product in direct competition with their old company. The case was largely filed because the CEO/Founder was personally pissed off, and even then the case went nowhere. (The old company eventually bought the new company to make them go away.)

To answer your question, I doubt you can get more money, but you might get the non-compete officially waived.

Got a retention bonus at the beginning of the year that paid me the full amount the day i signed it and i thought it vested every month but i just found out i have to pay it back in full if i leave before year end. Been interviewing for a different company that i think I’m going to get an offer for. Has anyone negotiated a way to keep this bonus even if they leave? I own a lot of internal processes/projects at my company and if i leave with only two weeks notice they’d be screwed
