D'SA v. PLAYHUT, INC., B139673

An employment agreement which contains an unenforceable covenant not to compete may not be a condition of continued employment, even if such agreement contains choice of law or severability provisions which would enable the employer to enforce the other provisions of the employment agreement. An employer-s termination of an employee who refuses to sign such an agreement constitutes a wrongful termination in violation of public policy.
