A Mechanical Engineer friend of mine works for a company who designs UAVs. Recently they told their engineers they have to sign a 1 year non-compete agreement, meaning they cannot work for any other company associated with UAVs for 1 year after termination for any reason. If he doesn't sign, they will plan on replacing him. He isn't sure what to do. Any advice? How easy is it to enforce a non-compete agreement? Can they legally fire him for not signing this agreement?
