    Speak with your human resource office and see if this is a valid claim.

    It is not enforceable.

    Even if you signed something, if were not a key employee or corporate officer, making a non-compete clause stick is going to be very difficult.

    My understanding is that it is possible, but difficult to do without a signed agreement. There are different types of restrictive covenants in the form of a non-compete clause or preventing you from soliciting clients of the companies that you wouldn’t have known about if you hadn’t worked there.

    Without an employment contract, it makes it tough, but if they can prove to the court that they only want to protect their "legitimate business interests" and that it only extends to those interests they have a legitimate claim.
