• Many employers, wrongly believe that post termination restrictions do not work. However, when professionally designed, targeted and maintained, restrictions on competition and on misuse of confidential information are an increasingly important part of protecting your business from competition.

    Employment Law Partner Colin Smith looks at the legal position of restrictive covenants and the actions that employers can take.

    Separately, the government has recently announced proposals to restrict non-compete clauses to no longer than 3 months, placing non-compete clauses in the legislative cross hairs and increasing the scrutiny and focus applied to them.

    “You cannot stop me from working”, “These are not enforceable”, “Nobody ever does anything about these”.

    We commonly hear these phrases when it comes to restrictive covenants, aka post termination restrictions. Are they correct? Can you enforce restrictions on competition? Does your organisation have appropriate and enforceable protections in place?

    In this half hour webinar, Employment Partner Colin Smith reviews the key legal and practical considerations involved in the management and enforcement of restrictive covenants.

    Topics covered include the design and drafting of restrictive covenants, contractualisation, the maintenance of restrictive covenants and the government proposals for statutory controls.
