Under Section 27 of the Contracts Act of 1872, any agreement that prevents a person from practising a legitimate occupation, commercial or commercial activity is null and void.  However, Pakistani courts have in the past made decisions in favour of such restrictive covenants, as the restrictions are “reasonable”.  The definition of “appropriate” depends on the time, geographic location and designation of the worker. In the case of Exide Pakistan Limited vs. Abdul Wadood, 2008 CLD 1258 (Karachi), the High Court of Sindh found that the adequacy of the clause will vary on a case-by-case basis and depends primarily on the length and extent of geographical territory If you decide to leave an employer with whom you have an agreement not to compete, the employer cannot do anything.
In this case, be sure to come up with a type of agreement with the employer so you can do whatever you want. Also make sure that the employer exempts you from your non-competition agreement with a signed document. As a general rule, the courts, which invalidate most non-competition clauses, forcefully apply this rule, which means that they generally invalidate any contractual limitation of a worker`s right to a competitive activity after the activity has ceased. So what exactly happens if you violate a non-compete agreement? The simple answer is that if you violate a legally valid and enforceable non-compete agreement under state law, you will end up having to pay money to your former employer. In addition, your former employer may also take legal action against your current employer because you are violating the non-compete agreement. But it may also happen to you after a violation of a non-compete agreement, because the employer does not want to enforce the agreement and take legal action against you or your future employer. What is more, it is also possible that you will not have any consequences on the violation of a non-competition clause because, at first, the agreement is not even binding. All this can be alarming for someone who has no legal training and it is important to contact an experienced lawyer before entering into a non-compete agreement or as soon as you think you may be subject to an agreement. 16.
