Restrictive Covenants

Non-solicitation clauses or agreements

Seeking to prevent departing employees from joining competing organizations via employment contract clauses isn’t new, despite the fact that employers may run the risk of developing a damaged reputation for insisting that they be signed by new and/or potential recruits. As well, the trend toward use of more specific and forceful clause language is emerging as well, sometimes including an actual list of prohibited companies an employee could choose to work for upon dismissal. This type of restrictive covenant must be well-drafted and considered reasonable, fair and balanced to be enforceable. Let Rudner MacDonald protect your interests by reviewing sections of existing employment contracts, or initially drafting clauses of this nature to ensure admissibility in court, if necessary.
