§ 23:921 (I) of the law prohibits the application of non-complete agreements against automobile sellers.  Automobile sellers are the only category of exempt professionals covered by the act and who cannot be prevented by their employers from selling automobiles.  The Louisiana courts have upheld this prohibition even in situations where a seller performs management functions at the place of sales.  There are eight exceptions to the general prohibition. Each is established on a relational manner, which means that a non-compete clause in effect under Louisiana law must exist between the parties listed in the eight exceptions. . . .
