The End of the Line… Employment Law Essentials FREE* Seminar

RestrictiveCovenantsMaking Restrictive Covenants Work for Your Business.


Employment is one of the fastest changing areas of law. No employer – from the smallest family run business to the largest multinational organisation can afford to fall behind or get the law wrong.


In this workshop we will be looking at the thorny issue of when to give references to prospective employers of your staff –what to say and leave out and the potential cost to your business of getting it wrong.


We will look at how you can minimise the risks and the threats to your business of key staff leaving and setting up in competition themselves or joining a rival company and taking customers and staff with them. All too often though, employers have either poorly drafted and therefore ineffective provisions or no contractual restrictions at all, potentially leading to financial loss and damage to their business.

Why should you attend?

By the end of the workshop, your delegates will understand:

  • Issues of confidentiality, trade-secrets and restrictions on an employee’s activities.
  • What limited protection employers have in the absence of written contractual restrictions.
  • Have a working knowledge of the types of information that an employer can seek to protect.
  • The technicalities of how the parties enter into contractual restrictions at the outset of employment, during employment and once someone leaves.
  • The relationship with other elements of the contract of employment, for example notice requirements and “garden leave” provisions.
