ordinarily not

ordinarily under california law, noncompete agreements are unenforceable. however there are exceptions, such as where the covenant has been purchased as part of the sale of a business. also the agreement may very well be enforceable in another state.
you need to have your agreement reviewed by an attorney experienced in employment law.
if you are in southern california, please call me to arrange an appointment.
