Bel Air, MD asked in Business Law, Contracts and Employment Law for Pennsylvania

Q: I had a NCA with a company that was purchased by another company. Do I still have an NCA?

The company I worked for, was purchased by another company. The new company acquired the assets and its related business and operates the acquired company through a wholly-owned subsidiary.

I did not go along with the new company so my question is whether or not the 2 year non-compete that I had with my original company, is still enforceable?

A: You should have an attorney review your NCA for the best guidance. There may be assignment clauses and the NCA obligations may extend beyond your employment (with either company). It would be wise to engage an attorney to receive solid advice.
