What are the types of restrictive covenants?
There are several different types of restrictive covenants an employer can use. These include:
- Non-competition – this restricts your former employee from working for a competitor or setting up a competing business.
- Non-solicitation – this restricts your former employee from approaching customers, clients, or prospective clients once they have moved to their new employer or set up their own business.
- Non-dealing – this restricts your former employee from entering any contract between themselves, clients or prospective clients, even when the former employee does not initiate that contact.
- Non-poaching – this restricts your former employee from approaching their previous colleagues to move to their new business or employer.
