Restrictive Covenants

Contracts of Employment often contain restrictive covenants that require an employee to abide by the terms of the covenant with regard to confidentiality and contact with a competitor for example. The purpose of the covenant is usually to protect the employer who may be concerned that a departing employee could provide a competitor with a valuable competitive advantage. These clauses are often drafted widely and can be declared unenforceable by a Court in certain circumstances however where valid and enforceable an employer could require an employee to abide by them for a period of time.
