Restrictive Covenants and Confidential Information
As a business you have every right to protect information that you consider both integral and invaluable to the success of your business. Restricting the use of this information or the soliciting of customers by employees after their term of employment may be vital to the protection of your market position. The inclusions of restrictive covenants and confidentiality clauses in the contracts of senior or key staff at the commencement of the employment relationship aims to protect the use of this information.
The restrictive covenants must protect your legitimate business interests and extend no further than is reasonably necessary to protect those interests.
We can advise on existing restrictive covenants or draft new covenants that ensure your business interests are upheld should the contract terminate.
