One thing is for sure after reading this thread. Even though 99% of my work is contract-free, I will scan the odd one that does involve a contract to see if they put something ludicrous like that in there.

Luckily, in my business, people don't generally think this way.

Even if there is one, they are almost never enforceable. Unless you are considered a "critical" employee, courts are loathe to enforce them.
