Employers here may have a non-compete clause in their employment contract.
This section of the contract serves to restrict the actions of their employees after they resign and join a competitor.
In the past, these restrictive covenants were difficult to enforce.
However, in a high court decision, a trading company was able to prevent a former employee from selling to their overseas customers because of the special circumstances.
This highlights the importance of how non-compete clauses are drafted and being able to show that the ex-employee has breached it.
