Restrictive Covenants in Employment Contracts

There are two common types of clauses that employers may include in employment contracts to protect themselves; non-competition clauses & non-solicitation clauses. Employees should be made aware that these clauses are not always reasonable or enforceable. There is a concern that the use of these clauses by employers may too heavily restrict labour mobility and therefore courts frown on overly broad clauses of this nature.
