Dear Richard,Everyone working here agrees to abide by our policies and rules as a condition of employment, so I don't see the exposure. Certainly there are times when individuals would have been better off financially if they did not have to abide by the restrictions, but our customers are much better off with the restrictions. Besides, we like to sleep at night ;-)I'm a believer in strong contract law, but the question of how reasonable the restriction is remains. Sure, you can have an employment contract that requires everyone to wear green jumpsuits to work, but there's no reason to do so unless it's necessary. I mean, if they're abiding by the 5-day restriction, why restrict days 6-30? Out of curiousity, has this proviso ever had the negative effect described in my initial example? I'm just guessing that it hasn't, but when it does, that's when it becomes unreasonable, and fast.Yours truly,Mr. X...got me thinking...
