This decision holds that Lab. Code 925 is enforceable in federal court. A California employee who was not represented by counsel when he signed an employment agreement may void clauses in the contract that choose another state as the forum or another state’s law as applicable law. Having done so, the employee may enforce the contract in federal court, cleansed of those clauses. Nothing in 28 USC 1404 or the Supreme Court’s decisions generally upholding forum selection and choice of law clauses preempts Lab. Code 925. The decision also affirms the district court’s ruling that the employment contract’s one-year non-competition clause was unenforceable under B&P Code 16600.
