Our employment lawyers understand the value your business places in your clients, suppliers and staff; and how important it is for you to be able to protect those assets and retain those contacts when employees move on from your employment.
Planning for the time when an employee leaves employment may not be at the forefront of your mind when recruiting, but it is should be an important consideration and our employment lawyers can help ensure that your business is protected right from the very start.
Not all obligations an employee owes to his or her employer continue after their employment with the business has ended. That is why it is important for employers to be able to rely on robust and enforceable restrictive covenants, whether in contracts of employment, or as separate contractual policies or agreements.
For restrictive covenants to be enforceable, they must be reasonable and only as wide as is necessary to protect the legitimate commercial interests of the business. What is reasonable (and therefore enforceable) will vary from business to business and be based on each individual circumstance. Trying to impose such restrictions after employment has begun can be difficult.
The experience and expertise that our employment lawyers can provide will help ensure that your business and its most valuable assets are protected.
