A commonly held misconception is that restraint of trade clauses in employment agreements are not worth the paper they are written on. The rarely appreciated reality is that a properly drafted and implemented restraint of trade can have a huge impact on being able to successfully protect a business’ proprietary and confidential information. Not having one can cost a business significantly, particularly when the business relies on the value associated with good relationships. Often good relationships have been formed as a result of considerable investment by an employer who has paid their staff maintain and build the relationship for the sole benefit of the company. The use of good confidentiality clauses working in tandem with a well-considered and reasonable restraint of trade clause is a sensible, if not imperative, part of protecting confidential information.
This webinar will give you useful tips in how best to protect your valuable confidential and proprietary information and use a recent case as an example of how the Employment Court will enforce a valid restraint of trade.
The Webinar will be presented by Chris Patterson, Barrister. Chris has been counsel in a scores of procceedings involving theunauthorised use and/or disclosure of confidential information.
