I have been with my company 20+ years. This past year they did a sales market restructure - directions from new upper management. The restructure has been less than favorable toward my commission goals. The coming years don’t look promising. There are sales people making $$$ only here 1-2 years because they were given all my opportunities. It is hard to leave this company - it has been great until now with the changes. I have a very strong job offer elsewhere - but worried about non compete.

I would definitely check what laws apply for your area. CA and NYC are not able to have enforceable non-competes. Move to one of these states and you don't have to worry.

I am in NY - I am not familiar with the non compete law. I have a very good job offer - they are going to review for me too.

Move to CA and the non compete becomes unenforceable

I would personally take the job offer, maybe consult with a lawyer to see what the options are? I wouldn't close yourself off to it if it's really good

Ask your company if they are going to defend you on non-compete. They probably will.

I don't have any advice for you, but I'm really hoping that your potential new employer will be able to help you figure out the logistics. I can imagine that this is such a stressful situation to be in, and I really hope it all works out for you.

You can ask your new employer for some help. I think they can help your figure out how to go about it. Good luck.

99% of NY noncompetes are not enforceable.
