Non Solicitation Clauses in Employment Contracts Can Work

Share this page:

The High Court has ruled that a clause in the contract of employment of a business development director which restrained him  from approaching his former employer’s customers for six months following the termination of his employment was “reasonable and wholly enforceable”. Accordingly, the ex-employee was ordered to pay £50,000 in damages as compensation for the loss of revenue suffered by his employer due to his solicitation of customers in breach of the clause.
