From our experience in dealing with redundancies, we have encountered situations where employees who, as per the terms of their employment contracts were not meant to work for anyone else whilst employed by their employers, have done so.

In one instance, an employer working within the IT sector, with a creative job, in fact carried out work for his employer’s sister company. This is technically a breach of contract and if you find yourself in a similar situation, you need to ensure you: (i) disclose to your employer the fact that you have done work for someone else; and (ii) obtain a waiver from the provisions in your contract of employment that sought to prevent you from working for another.

If you need legal advice on the terms of your contract of employment or advice on the terms of your compromise agreement if you are facing redundancy, please contact an employment solicitor at or visit one of the following pages on employment law:
