Does an Employer have any right to add a clause LOCK-IN-PERIOD in an agreement?

I work in a Healthcare sector where the employer tries to make a new agreement where it has been mentioned that " if the service of the employee is terminated by the employer OR if the employee terminates the agreement by himself, the clause" Lock in Period" shall be applicable i.e. the employee shall not find or engage in any job in the Healthcare sector for 3 consecutive years. Does the employer have the right to do so?????

1. Lock-In period clause is applicable for not leaving /abandoning the company employment AND for not joining any competitor or parting with confidential business related information /data.

2. Lock-In is NOT applicable as a general clause for restricting /restraining Employees from finding employment in the same field. This is classified as malpractice & restrainment.

Keep Smiling .... Hemant Agarwal
