In the Netherlands, prohibitions on competition (non-competing or competing) are allowed on issues such as switching to a new employer and the discourse of the old company`s customers. Unreasonable clauses can be struck down by the courts.  Unlike other jurisdictions that follow the general rule that consideration is only important if it exists and not if it is appropriate, Illinois will consider the appropriateness of the consideration.  Most courts will require at least two years of continuous employment to grant loans in order to support a non-compete clause (or any other type of restrictive agreement). However, in some cases where a worker behaves particularly acutely on screen, the courts have asked for less. After a worker violates the non-competition clause and pays lump sum damages to the employer, the People`s Court holds whether the employer asks the worker to continue to comply with the non-competition rules as agreed. Already in Dyer`s Case in 1414, English Common Law decided not to impose restrictions of competition because of their nature as trade restrictions.  This prohibition remained unchanged until 1621, when it became apparent that a restriction limited to a given geographical location constituted an enforceable exception to the previous absolute rule. Nearly a hundred years later, with the turn of 1711 with mitchel v Reynolds, the exception became the rule that created the modern framework for analyzing the applicability of non-competition rules.  Non-competition clauses are generally considered legally binding as long as they are subject to appropriate restrictions, for example.B clear and realistic areas where staff can work or not, or a specific period of time that must elapse before a staff member can return to work in the field. The application of non-competition rules in the state of Florida is quite common. Some law firms rely on these agreements and represent workers, employers and potential new employers of a worker currently subject to a non-compete clause.
The agreement should not be too broad and, in general, difficult to implement if it lasts more than two years.  However, due to their length or geographic scope, Florida courts will rarely refuse to impose a non-compete clause. . . .
