When an employee leaves a business, often they depart with a great deal of knowledge, know-how and information which is of value to that business.
Additionally, they may have valuable relationships with that business’ customers, clients, suppliers and/or staff. In the absence of appropriate protections, the employee may be free to utilise their knowledge/relationships gained with the business to their own advantage, and that of the business’ competitors.
Contractual restraints of trade are an important protection to reduce the likelihood of this risk – but only if they are properly drafted.
In this webinar, our lawyers will:
- Explain the who, what, when and why of restraints of trade
- Discuss the construction of restraints to ensure they are enforceable
- Discuss how employers can ensure restraints do not become void or unenforceable
- Discuss recent cases and their implications for the enforceable measure of restraints
Delivered free and online, we encourage questions from participants at any time during the webinar. We also run polls and questionnaires to keep you engaged and interacting.
