This up-coming season due to so many landscape installs resulting from the tremendous building in the south west suburbs, we will out of necessity have to put on five more workers.We do not need the whining,lazy been in a jail type to fill those position,

But US govt won't issue Visas for Mexicans for lawncare work. Folks get around this 'legally' by incorporating as a farm and getting ag labor or they just hire them illegally. That's where the US Guest Worker program would really come in handy. I'd hire Mexican with Visas immediately and pay them exactly what I was going to pay a US citizen.

However, with regards to non-compete agreements..they can be tough to enforce. You have to be willing to pony up the money to defend it as well.

In a right to work state the court will not honor your contract. My wife went through this when she quit here last job and went to the completion. After talking to several lawyers we found out that they could take it to court but there was no way a judge would side with them. The reason being was simple California is a right to work state. All the lawyers did say what they are really trying to do is get you into a long court battle and get you to give up. Bottom line, if you have a lot of money to blow you can most likely get them to give up on there dream till the contract expires.

That having been said, the purpose of a non-compete agreement is to help prevent competition from happening, but no, you can not stop someone from going through with it. Still, it does help, it slows some down.

we dont have a non compete agreement as others said our lawyer says it wont hold up in court because u can't stop someone from working. but what we do have is a NDA (non disclosure agreement) all customers lists/data, notes, etc will remain our secret and not to be used in anyway..
