Employment law - restraint of trade contract clauses

An employment contract with a former employer forbids:

1. Accepting work from thier clients
2. Employing/enticing thier employees to new jobs

for two years after employment ends.

Is this just to scare people, or can they actually enforce this ? I assume that various statutes and cases exist to rebutt this kind of thing - can anybody point me in the right direction ?

Of couse, there has been no breach of confidence or any other 'sharp' practice. We are just worried about this particular clause.
