No matter whom you ask, noncompetes are difficult to enforce. Despite strong interests of employers in protecting customer goodwill and other assets, enforceability is determined by courts on a state-by-state and case-by-case basis. Some courts, like those in California, refuse to enforce noncompetes altogether. Others, like those in Maryland, will enforce them only if they meet common law standards of reasonableness.
