I signed a non-compete with a hair salon. After about three months, I finally quit because extremely hostile work environment. The non-compete states that I cannot open/work at a certain type of salon or use a specific type of hair products within 8-10 miles of the salon for two years. The salon I hope to work at is not that same type, but is about 7 miles from the previous salon. I live further than that from the potential salon and cannot afford to drive farther. For my health, I have auto-immune related allergies that restrict me to using this specific type of hair product, a main reason I took the position at the original salon in the first place, and need to continue to use as a hairstylist. Do I have valid reasons to breach my non-compete?
