The likelihood that authorities will enforce a non-competition agreement can vary depending on state laws and whether the courts feel that the restriction is reasonable. For example, a one-year restriction for a salesperson may be considered reasonable, as there is the threat that the salesperson may use leads gained from his or her old job. However, a one-year restriction for an engineer working in a high-tech field may be unreasonable, because the fast-paced nature of the field could render the out-of-work engineer's knowledge obsolete.
