Is a non-compete clause still in effect if the employer's contract with a corporation as a sub-contractor is allowed to expire?

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Every non-compete agreement is different, so you really won’t know unless you seek the advice of an attorney who reviews the entire agreement and consults with you in depth regarding your circumstances. Even if you are terminated, that does not automatically mean that the non-compete is invalid in Ohio. Regardless, it is especially important to have a lawyer review your non-compete prior to taking any further action, such as applying for jobs that may violate the non-compete. A good employment lawyer will tell you what you can and cannot do under the agreement, and might be able negotiate your way out of the non-compete or minimize the restrictions.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . It does not seem that would void your non-compete with your actual former employer, unless your non-complete clause *says* that if they lose their contract then your N/C is voided.
