Restrictive covenants are found in employment contracts. They usually restrict the use of your employer’s confidential information and aim to try and protect or limit your access to your former employer’s customers after your employment has come to an end.
These covenants can be extremely complicated and some are not always enforceable, even though you may be told otherwise by your employer. If you are involved in any dispute with your former employer over the enforceability of these covenants then we can help. We have many years of experience in this area acting on behalf employers and employees and therefore understand what is and is not likely to be enforceable.
