I signed a 1 year + 1 year employment contract with a non-compete back in August, with the second year extension at my company's discretion. Since then I've been offered another job that I would like to take. I need to ask my company to agree not to pick up my option for another year in August. Any suggestions on how best to approach them on this subject? If they force me to stay, I will be unhappy, and why would they want to keep me around?
