Legal Question

Asked on: 12/12/12, 7:07 am

I work for Edward Jones Investments (for 6 years), and I am being asked to sign a new employment contract. Although the wording is similar to my original contract, there is some more restrictive language that basically bars me from talking to my clients for 1 year if I leave, EVEN if the client contacts me!

I don't understand how they can do that? Is this really enforcable? Doesn't a contract require consideration? I'm not "getting" anything by signing this, other than keeping my job. This is complete crap!
