Hirshberg, 93 N.Y.2d 382, 690 N.Y.S.2d 854 (1999), that an employer may have a legitimate and protectable business interest in preventing former employees from exploiting or appropriating the relationships and goodwill of its customers which had been created and maintained at the employer’s expense -- some New York courts still appear to be reluctant to uphold contractual provisions in employment agreements that are designed simply to protect customer goodwill.
