Certain fields require specially skilled employees who are hard to find. Some companies in such fields make such employees sign a contract that makes the employee promise not to go work for a competing firm for a set period after leaving his or her current employer. Many courts though have declared this contract non-binding as it affects the employability of an individual. Yet paradoxicality, for people who signed such agreements when working for competing firms, many firms are unwilling to consider hiring them during the period covered by the agreement.

Which one of the following if true, most helps to resolve the paradox?

A.Most companies that require their employees to sign such agreements are aware that these documents are not legally binding
B.In some industries for example, the broadcast media, companiesâ€™ main source of new employees tends to be people who are already employed by competing firms
C.Many companies will not risk having to become involved in lawsuits, even suits that they expect to have a favorable outcome.
D.Many companies consider their employees established relationships with clients and other people outside the company to be valuable company assets
E.Many people who have signed such agreements are unwilling to renege on a promise by going to work for a competing firm

The answer must be C as it clearly points out as to why the companies do not hire those people inspite of most of the courts being opposed to such bindings.
