Can my current employer fire me for asking for my non compete agreement to ensure that I'm not violating it's terms?: I'm looking at new jobs, and have a good lead at a new company in NC, doing the same line of work, however I want to make sure I'm not violating my non compete agreement (since I'm pretty sure if it's in another state, I'm okay).
My current company is very small, and never gave me a copy of it originally, but I'm afraid if I ask them for the agreement, they'll fire me because they think I'm going to leave. Or make my job harder.
Would they legally be able to do that, or do they have to provide me with the information if I ask for it?
