For example, when a radio or television person ceases or is licensed by a channel in the media market where he operates, he cannot work for another competing channel in the same market until the expiry of his contract with his former contractor.  Often, you have no choice but to sign a non-competition clause if you want to work for the employer. Employers benefit from a non-compete clause because they prevent a former employee from sharing with his competitors industry experience, knowledge, trade secrets, customer lists, potential customers, strategic plans and other confidential and proprietary information. To that end, two bills were introduced in the Senate this year with the aim of banning competition bans for low-wage workers. .
