The Broker
Q16 December 2018 " I want to protect myself from my assistants putting up
their plate in opposition. I have been advised that a
restrictive covenant may not be legally binding, what else
can I do?
?" RGT. West Midlands

A: The courts now seem to look at anything that appears to restrict an employee from having their
being illegal. My only advice is that if you include any restrictive clauses ensure that they are reasonable both in time, distance and conditions. Often distance may be only a mile, and time only 12 months. Try and obtain legal advice on this before presenting it to your employees.
