Hold the Line! - Restraints & Employment Contracts

Workplace Law's Managing Director, Athena Koelmeyer, will guide you through the legal minefield of post-employment restraints.

Imagine yourself in one of the following situations:

  1. Your Business Account Manager has resigned to join your number one competitor. Her employment contract is five years old and doesn’t have any restraints. What can you do to protect your customer base?
  2. You have just recruited a new employee. During the interview he denied having any restraints and said he had $2,000,000 worth of customers to bring to your business – a key factor in you selecting him for the role. During his second week with your business you receive a letter from his former employer advising you that he has a 12-month restraint in relation to working for a direct competitor. How do you respond to them and what do you do with your new recruit?

Workplace Law's Managing Director, Athena Koelmeyer, will guide you through the legal minefield of post-employment restraints in our webinar on Thursday, 28 September 2023 at 11.00 am (AEST).
