Business leaders, HR professionals and employees can gain valuable insights into the use of restrictive covenants in the workplace during a free seminar hosted by employment law experts from legal firm Bishop & Sewell.
The online webinar ‘Competing, poaching and earning a living – when is a restrictive covenant enforceable?’ will take place on Wednesday 16 November 2022 from 9:30am – 10:30am.
Delivered by Rhian Radia, Partner and Head of the Employment team, and Marianne Johnson, Solicitor, the webinar will address the use of restrictive covenants in the workplace, from the perspectives of both employers and employees.
Restrictive covenants are used to protect a business’ interests or confidential information when an employee leaves. For example, they may restrict where an individual can work in the future, who they can work for and what they are able to do in their dealings going forward with any clients or contacts.
Rhian said: “This is a complex area of employment law and as such it is very important that employers and employees understand the implications and potential consequences of breaching restrictive covenants, which can be both costly and severe.
“This webinar will provide attendees with an understanding of the different types of restrictive covenants and their use, and explore what constitutes reasonable protection for an employer. We will also explore the topics of constructive dismissal and how disputes arising from restrictive covenants should be handled. There will also be lots of opportunities for delegates to ask questions during the session.”
