    Who is the enforcement agency of concern? A family from the NYC area?

    No idea about NC. It is a very state-specific issue though.

    This doesn't have bearing on actual enforceability (and a very big IANAL caveat here), but another variable to factor in is how litigious is the employer? I've known someone who's employer made their life very difficult with the strictest possible interpretation of all stipulations in the agreement and on the other end of the spectrum where leeway was given as long as the intent/spirit of the agreement was kept.

    I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice.

    This link may contain advice on dealing with no competes.

    It really is state specific, so look up your state laws as well as look at the nitty gritty in your no compete agreement.

    This does not sound good.

    My recollection from 20 years ago in NC was enforceable for a reasonable time period which at that time was one year. This was when it was First Union and Nationsbank fighting over employees.

    Non-compete agreement. "No-compete" contracts are something else ("sole source").

    When putting together business deals, we would ask for three years from the seller of the business because, as I was told, the courts would not uphold a longer period. Sort of like, "You can't deny a person the right to earn a living." I don't know how it differs by state.

    Make sure to get current info, too. Georgia for example had a long history of courts throwing them out. Then the legislature enacted a statute a few years ago making them much more enforceable in order to be a more "pro-business" state. So what was the law in NC a few years ago may or may not still be good law.

    (Sorry, not an NC lawyer).
