Employment contract clause: art. 340 ss CO interpretation

Hello everyone,

This is a question regarding the employment contract clause art. 340 ss CO. I googled this clause and found this website, not sure if it's the exact clause to interpret the contract I'm concerning:

https://www.lausanne.ch/vie-pratique...ncurrence.html


One clause in the contract states that according to above clause, the employee can't operate or work for a similar company for 3 years. How would you suppose to find another job in the same professional filed then??

Thank you in advance for your input! J

It's the dreaded (for some) / ineffective (in others' opinion or depending on the situation) non-compete clause. Search for previous threads about "non-compete" and "non compete" and for a short overview, see this item.
