On the 12th day of Christmas, my boss gave to me – a new non-compete

Despite my best efforts at educating my fellow Virginians, on the law, their rights and legal obligations, rumors still run rampant about the law and how it applies to individual employees. 

So, in the spirit of the Season, I wanted to share some of my favorite blogs (yes, some I wrote) and articles on Virginia employment issues (business torts, non-compete, implied contract, breach of contract law etc.) all while the 12 days of Christmas runs through your head. So, without delay, I bring you 

A little employment law rhyme, for the Holidays:

On the first day of Christmas, my boss gave to me: A newly updated Employment Handbook I never plan to read

On the second day of Christmas, my boss gave to me: Two new memos on overtime laws not changing after all. 

On the third day of Christmas my colleague gave to me: Three articles on work life balance

On the fourth day of Christmas my HR manager gave to me: Four new forms to complete. 

On the fifth day of Christmas the CEO gave to me – Five Dollars to Starbucks as my entire Christmas bonus. 

On the sixth day of Christmas my boss gave to me: Six Right to Work state posters I am supposed to hang.

 

On the seventh day of Christmas my office mate gave to me: Seven minutes to review my customer list before it was deleted from my phone.

On the eight day of Christmas my HR manager gave to me: Eight new in-services to complete before the New Year.

On the ninth day of Christmas my carpool played for me: Nine of the most boring podcasts ever recorded.  

On the tenth day of Christmas my boss gave to me: Nothing. He’d already given out the Starbucks gift cards. 

On the eleventh day of Christmas my colleague gave to me: Eleven Emails caught in spam. 

On the twelfth day of Christmas my CEO gave to me: A new non-compete to have signed by Jan. 1.
