There are Big Changes Coming to Washington State Law on Non-Competition Agreements, and one of the changes is the requirement for employers to notify prospective new hires of the company's non-competition restrictive covenant before you hire them.
Here is draft language you can use; modify the red font to match the name of your company and the title of your Employment Agreement:
As a condition of Company Name making this offer of employment to you, on or before your date of hire, you are required to read and sign our Employee Non-Competition, Non-Solicitation, Confidentiality and Inventions Agreement (“Agreement’). A copy of the Agreement is provided with this offer letter. Please read this carefully. Please also note that, while the Agreement will be immediately enforceable in all respects should you accept our offer of employment by signing the Agreement and returning your signed copy to us, the non-competition covenant will only be enforced if, now or in the future, your annualized earnings, as reported in box one of your W-2, exceed $100,000.00, as adjusted annually based on CPI-U inflation after January 1, 2020.
