Post-employment restrictions/restrictive covenants

If a key employee was to leave your business tomorrow, how would you protect your confidential information and your most important customers and suppliers?

Restrictive covenants are terms that are inserted into an employee’s contract of employment to restrict that employee’s activities for a period of time after their employment has ended. They can be used to prevent the employee from poaching or trying to poach your clients or suppliers, using your business’ confidential information about or even from working for a competitor.

There is a common misconception that all such clauses are unenforceable. Whilst the law regarding the enforceability of restrictive covenants is complex, provided that they are drafted correctly these types are restrictions can certainly be used to provide your business with important protection from former employees.

Our specialist team of employment solicitors can assist you in drafting restrictive covenants for your contracts that are enforceable and that accurately reflect the circumstances of your business. It is important that these restrictions are tailored to your business otherwise a court may find that they are unenforceable. Should one of your employees act in breach of their restrictions, we can also provide your business with robust representation to enforce the contract including the pursuit of High Court action if necessary. Call us for a free initial consultation today – we can discuss the matter over the phone, by Skype, or in person at your business premises or at our offices in Sheffield or Doncaster.
