Post termination agreements

The need for specialist advice:

Post termination restrictions  – also called restrictive covenants – set out what employees can and cannot do after they leave your company, or their contract has been terminated.

Employers often impose post termination restrictions to protect their business due to concerns that employees may go to work for a competitor.

At Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall our experienced, specialist lawyers advise you on the correct way to implement effective post termination restrictions.

Let our experience make yours that much easier:

Expert knowledge is vital because a restrictive covenant can only be used to protect justifiable business interests. Restrictions that cover too wide an area, or are imposed for a significant period of time often prove to be ‘unreasonable’ and are therefore ineffective.

Many businesses are particularly concerned about senior executives leaving their company with great deal of information that would be useful to a competitor.  Some of the most important business interests that need protecting are a company’s client base and confidential information.

We will expertly draft any post termination restrictions so that you and your business are comprehensively protected.
