New Graduate Signed a Non-Compete (RCA) and need to renege
I recently had a few things happen to me personally that makes it very difficult to relocate to Chicago. I did not know that the RCA agreement was a non-compete and I signed it before I am set to join a firm in August. I am reneging for a competitor that will allow me to go fully remote (The key reason. A few family members passed away and being remote is key.)
Those in the industry told me my situation is tragic enough as is and that an employer isn't going to enforce a non-compete and pay me 75k over 6 months to sit and do nothing when I haven't even gone through their training program. I want to believe that but does that make sense for the?
