Thank you! First, this is not likely to be enforceable as it's far too broad. Although non-compete agreements are not enforceable in many states, NY is not one of them. Non-compete agreements are enforceable in NY. BUT, that does not mean that a particular non-compete agreement is enforceable. To be enforceable, a non compete agreement must be reasonable in both scope of time and area. Additionally, the court will balance the proprietary need of the employer to protect its business with the employee's ability to earn a living in his or her chosen profession. Further, non compete agreements are expensive to enforce and, while they are enforceable, courts tend to look for fairly egregious behavior on the employee's part to uphold them. To be enforced, non compete agreements must be narrowly written, fair to employer and employee, and be sound public policy
. To be considered a reasonable restrictive covenant, the non-compete must be limited as to both time and geography. For example, the non-compete can't prohibit you from working in your field in all 50 states for the next 25 years. This would be unreasonable. Additionally, to be enforceable, the employer must demonstrate that it has a legitimate business interest in limiting your ability to compete. The employer's desire to limit competition is not a legitimate purpose. This provision has no geographical limits and leaves far too much discretion (i.e., they define creditor) in the employer's hands. Also, the NDA being binding on your heirs is ridiculous; you're the only one signing this. Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your questions.
