"The below-signed agrees not to work as a chef for another hotel in the same metropolitan area for a period of two years after leaving our employ."
• Describe and analyze the five elements of a contract that must exist for this agreement to be enforceable.
• Explain why this contract is governed by common law or the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC).
• Examine at least two circumstances in which this non-compete agreement would be unenforceable.
