Employment Law

Restrictive covenants

A restrictive covenant is a contract that prevents an employee from disclosing any confidential information about the business following termination of employment. It is important to note these contracts are only enforceable if they legitimately protect the best interests of the business.

When implemented correctly, restrictive covenants can prevent an ex-employee from misuse of any information they have about the business. A restrictive covenant can be quite complicated and usually requires the assistance of a legal professional. Lance Mason can draft these important documents for you and explain the procedure for enforcing them.

When can a restrictive covenant be useful?

  • When a member of staff is working their notice period
  • If a member of staff has access to client details that could be passed on if the individual decides to leave and work for a competitor
  • If a member of staff has access to any sensitive information that may be damaging to the business
