Each year we deal with legal challenges to contracts of employment, particularly where they contain restrictive covenants. The wording of your contracts is very important and could leave your company open to financial loss if they haven’t been professionally prepared by an Employment Law specialist.
For example, in a recent High Court case, a company who provides food products to Chinese restaurants claimed they had lost around £200,000 worth of business when one of their employees left them to work for a competitor. The court said that the wording of the restrictive covenant in the former employee’s contract of employment was poorly drafted, ambiguous and unreasonably restrictive. The court ruled that it was unlikely the restrictions would be enforceable in their current state.
