Can I fight the non complete clause

My employer provided an offer letter thting tht I would make up 10 10% each quarter and 20% at year end. I have been meeting my goals however the compnay had paid very few bonuses and never at the agreed upon amounts. Only prinicipls and top management have been getting bonuses. The only reason I took this job was because based on my pst experience i knew I would succeed. I have reports that show statistics of my productivity versus other employees and I am blowing them out of the water.

An attorney needs to look at your offer letter to see if it can be enforced as a contract. If it can, and, if part of the consideration for the non-competition clause was that you would get paid the bonuses set out in the letter, then you would have a good argument that the non-competition clause can not be enforced.
