Am I obligated to sign a non-compete agreement with my new employer?

Typically, if your employer asks you to sign a non-compete agreement, it is conditional to your employment. However, it is highly advisable that you have an experienced employment lawyer look over the specific terms of any non-compete agreement that you are asked to sign, since it may be legally enforceable should you accept the job and decide to sign it. While some provisions of non-compete agreements may not comply with Texas state statues, some may have profound consequences upon your future.
