I signed a non-compete contract when I was hired at my last job and was recently terminated. Is the non-compete enforceable?

Answered on Dec 31, 2010

There may be a consideration question, but the bigger issue may be the extent of the non-compete provision. Two years and 100 miles is fairly extreme. From a practical standpoint, your former employer may not want to incur the costs to enforce the provision. If he wanted to, he could be forced to pursue an action in equity, which could get costly.
