The employment contract has a non-compete clause with the following features:

1) 6 months duration

2) Applicable globally in the same industry

3) Paid @ 75% of last drawn salary

4) Can be enforced any time by the employer post-termination up to 6months

Further, the contract has mentioned company appointed sole arbitrator will handle all disputes.

The employee here, in this case, is very young (~26yr age) and has worked in the company for only 2 yrs. (therefore is very junior)

Is this stringent non-compete on such a junior employee enforceable?

How can the employee dispute this clause since the company appointed sole-arbitrator is unlikely to rule in his favor?

NB:

* The main concern of the employee is that he wants non-compete to be voided ASAP (much before the end of 6 months) otherwise it would be fighting it would become irrelevant. <----------------
