Right To Work Laws
I am curious about the subject line as I just found out Minnesota has such a law along with several other states. My curiosity involves consulting firms and the typical "non-compete" clause - scenario*. It appears that in Minnesota that the right-to-work law takes precedence over non-compete agreements such that "non-competes" cannot be enforced.
Example of typical*:
You work for a firm where you have signed a one-year non-compete and you are billing at a client of that firm. You leave the firm. Apparently, this law allows you to work for the same client and not have to wait out the duration of the non-compete period.
Thoughts? Sources? Court cases?

Re: Right To Work Laws
As of February 2003 Minnesota isn't one of the right to work states according to a google link.
On non-compete clauses however, try the 7th link down here:
