While the fast food industry is known for high worker turnover and employees who go from one competitor to the next, the folks at Jimmy John’s apparently thought that the skills they provided to their workers were so special that employees had to sign strict noncompete clauses preventing them from taking their sandwich-craft elsewhere, even if they were fired. Now, as part of a settlement with the New York attorney general, JJ has agreed to stop using these restrictive employment agreements.

It's about time. I remember one time I applied for work as a part-time janitor and they wanted me to sign a non-compete and confidentiality agreement. Is mopping your way out of a room really a trade secret?
