Has anyone encountered a state of federal case, from any jurisdiction, in which the court refused to recognize an employer’s protectable interests as a consequence of the employer requiring a large group of its employees to execute noncompetes, regardless of exposure to confidential or proprietary information, and/or regardless of position?  In other words, every employee must sign as a condition of employment, even if certain positions would not pose post-separation threat to employer.  Thanks!

I’ve never seen a case like that, but I’ve also never heard of an employer doing such a thing.  I just doesn’t make sense to me and could certainly see that fact being used against the company in any action to enforce the covenant.
