Following separation from employment, the company does not allow employees to work for organizations that may be considered competitors. Although you have every right to seek gainful employment, our competitors would benefit greatly from your experience and expertise. It is up to us to determine whether our secrets are intentionally compromised, and if so, to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

Following separation from employment and for a period of two years thereafter, former employees are not permitted to work for a competitor within 100 miles of any location where Widget Company operates a physical facility or has another physical "presence"(sales employees who work at home).

Former employees are encouraged to make notice to the human resource manager if they expect to accept a competitor's offer of employment. The Company will decide whether an opportunity exists for our policy to be violated. If it is discovered that a former employee has violated this policy they may be subject to fines and/or prison.
