Can a non-compete contract contain stipulations which extend beyond contract expiration?

My question is regarding a non-compete clause in an employment contract. Specifically, the contract expired in Sept. 2002 although employment continued. The contract contains wording indicating that the employee cannot pursue employment with a competitor for 12 months after contract expiration. Is this enforceable in the state of NC? This is for a logistics position (nothing pertaining to proprietary info. as with sales, marketing or product development positions).

You might have something to rely on, but you should get an official opinion from an attorney before you take any action. Please understand that I do not represent you as I have not looked at your contract and cannot advise you without seeing what the contract says.
