Reasonable Restraint Rule Law and Legal Definition
Reasonable restraint rule provides that:
a. the covenant should be limited in operation either as to time or place;
b. the covenant should be based on some good consideration; and
c. the covenant should afford a reasonable protection for and not impose an unreasonable burden on the employer, the employee or the public. [Hoiness-Labar Ins. v. Alumbaugh, 1994 Mont. Dist. LEXIS 648 (Mont. Dist. Ct. 1994)].
