Michael asked, “Anyone have insight on non-compete clauses in employment agreements? Specifically, those saying you can’t work for a competitor for one or two years after your employment ends.

Andrew shared, “Hive, I need your mind. Experiencing something super weird for a restaurant client…
Google their name today and saw this paid ad…using their website address, their phone number, but the description and meta title isn’t correct…It’s for some other restaurant. The weirdest part is that all of the links go to our client’s actual website and pages AND we’re not running any Google Ads whatsoever. Does anyone know what it might be?”
