Restrictive covenants FAQ videos

FAQ 1

I have heard that the restrictive covenants in my employment contract aren’t worth the paper they’re written on because of European competition law. Is this true?

FAQ 2

I want to prevent all of my staff from going to work for one of my competitors. Can I do this?

FAQ 3

I haven’t got round to doing my employment contracts yet, but my sales manager has now left with a copy of my customer list. Is there anything I can do?

FAQ 4

I am concerned that one of my salesmen has uploaded all of our business contacts onto his LinkedIn profile. What should I do to protect the business in case he leaves?

FAQ 5

I am the owner of a software company and I suspect that our production director is taking steps to set up a rival business. Can he do this?

FAQ 6

Before I could speak to him, my co-director has handed in his resignation, giving me three months. What should I do?

FAQ 7

I have now learnt, from speaking to some of my customers, that most of my sales and production teams will be joining my co-director in his new business.

Can I stop this and can I proceed against my co-director’s new business and his business partners?
