California Supreme Court rejects noncompete clauses

California Supreme Court rejects noncompete clauses. This is old news but I discovered it today from a lab technician in Santa Barbara. I've signed a few noncompete agreements in my day, and apparently they're void here in California. "Californians have the right to move from one company to another or start their own business and can't be prohibited by their employer from working for a competitor in their next job."
