As employment law solicitors, we advise employees on redundancies and the terms of their compromise agreements. We often find that they are unaware of, or do not fully consider the risks of breaching certain provisions that apply upon termination of employment, including non-solicitation and non-compete provisions.

To reiterate what such provisions mean:

  • Non-solicitation provisions prohibit soliciting/dealing with certain individuals closely related to their ex-employers (employees, customers and suppliers); and
  • Non-compete provisions prohibit ex-employees from setting up a business, which may be seen as a competitor to the ex-employer.

Post-termination restrictions generally last for 3-12 months. It is prudent to seek legal advice in relation to employment law matters, especially post-termination provisions. This is particularly important where an employee is either looking to set up his or her own business after termination, or is looking to take up a similar role with a new employer.  A poor understanding of post-termination provisions could lead to serious breaches.
