Employment Law Case Study - Restrictive Covenants in Contract of Employment

15 October 2015

Client Situation

Our client had applied for a new job and required legal advice on the enforceability of Restrictive Covenants in his current contract of employment.

He wanted to resign and pursue the new career opportunity but was concerned that this may be in breach of the restrictive covenants and put him at risk of being sued.

We reviewed his employment contract with the restrictive covenants and spoke with him about his specific concerns.

The Outcome

We produced a detailed report on the enforceability of the restrictive covenants in his contract. Although we concluded the restrictive covenants were more likely than not to be enforceable we provided both detailed and practical legal advice on his options moving forward.

Although not the conclusion he had hoped for, our client was pleased that he had clear legal advice on the risks and detailed guidance on the practical steps he could take to protect his position.
