I was a highranking exec at a nonprofit member assoc. I was terminated "for cause" (the cause was shared but not the rule allegedly broken) after a new president was hired, w/o appeal and my employee file was w/o blemish until that point. They offered a severance package. Original terms were for 1 yr. and restricted me from having ANY business activity with ANY member of the association. Negotiation and redraft - they agreed to fairer terms but their new draft increased the term to 2 yrs, continued to restrict ANY business w/ members AND barred me from starting ANY business that includes of the same services as the assoc. These terms essentially nullify all business contacts I made during my tenure and employment in my field. There are several existing for-profit businesses that provide similar services as the nonprofit. These questionable negotiations have caused delays in my severance (3 months since being terminated). Are these terms enforceable? Can I sue for my severance and how would the terms potentially be interpreted under NYS law? Thank you!
