I’ve been reading about NCC enforcement in North Carolina and found several interesting cases on Legal sites. One is here and it has some interesting points one being ” The Court of Appeals, in affirming the trial court’s decision on summary judgment, noted that North Carolina law will not enforce non-compete agreements that are intended to “merely stifle normal competition.” Id. North Carolina law supports an individual’s right to earn a livelihood “unless the restriction protects a sufficient countervailing interest of the employer.”

I would consult a paralegal or an attorney, but I doubt the NCC you signed would be enforced.

Good Luck!
