  •  A "lay off" gets the company off the hook (7+ / 0-)

    in a state like NJ with its rules......no firing, just "downsizing", effectively putting that person out of work for 2 years.

    THis kind of thing needs to be publicized loud and long.

    •  A company trying to enforce a non-compete when (0+ / 0-)

      they fire you, without offering compensation, isn't going to get very far in any court in the land. They are effectively trying to blackball you, which means it is illegal under federal law.

      Since companies won't even give references now days because of the fear of liability law suits, I don't see a company's legal department allowing for that to happen.

      Again, one could skip the state courts and go right to federal if this situation were to arise.
