Also make sure that the employer releases you from your non-competition clause with a signed document. Tell! Depending on your relationship with your employer, you may benefit from a seat debate on your non-competition clause. Find out why you think the non-competition clause is not applicable (we can help you organise your argument) and – this is very important! – emphasize your desire to leave the company on good terms. Your employer will appreciate your openness and willingness to mutual understanding and can free you from the agreement. This authorization should be in writing and signed by both you and your employer. .
