Can your previous employer enforce the restrictive covenant in the contract? Ask the Expert.


Have you left your job? Are you going to work
for a competitor employer? Can your previous employer enforce the restrictive covenant
in the contract? Watch this short video an expert solicitor Tosh Polpitye will explain. So the way to think about it is what is the
purpose of the restrictive covenant? It’s to protect the legitimate business interest.
So if you work for Pepsi and then you go to work for Coca-Cola probably they could stop
you, there are trade secrets, there it’s things that could legitimately damage one of those
companies. If you’re going to work for a competitor but you’re not doing something that damages
that company, I don’t know as a silly example, if I went to another law firm worked as a
cleaner or something, then obviously it has nothing to do with me being a lawyer in that
firm. So as long as you’re doing something that doesn’t affect the other business, and
then listen it’s a legitimate reasonable and enforceable restrictive covenant. Thanks again for watching me and please share
the video if you enjoyed it, we put out a new video every week and if you haven’t subscribed
