Rosemount, MN asked in Employment Law for Minnesota

Q: Work for a cleaning company

Was gonna work for a cleaning company and they wanted me to sign a contract and stated in it that if I ever quit working there I could not do any cleaning as a individual contractor or for any other business within a 75 mile radius. Can they legally control what you do for 2 years after your employed there, or can they legally do that. What if they go out of business? Thanks

A: The company asked you to sign a "non-compete" agreement. If you did not sign the agreement, you have nothing to worry about. If you did sign the agreement, it may or may not be enforceable depending on a variety of circumstances. Specific questions based on the specific language of the contract will require a consultation with an attorney.
