Recorded Webinar: Thought Restraints of Trade Were Unenforceable? Think Again!


Date:   13th February 2018

Duration:  approx. 1.5 hours

In 2017, a Court granted injunctive relief in a case concerning a 10-year restraint of trade clause. It’s never been more pertinent to look at the law in this area and consider what employers can do to enforce their restraint of trade clause. This session looks at the drafting of your restraint of trade clauses to the practicality of enforcement.  It covers:

  • Restraint of trade clauses and making them enforceable
  • Cascading clauses – do they need to be rethought?
  • Restraint of Trade - ensuring restraint period is relative with position
  • Restraining future employment – when will it be appropriate to protect the legitimate interest of the employer?
  • Restraint of trade clauses and LinkedIn
  • Recent cases, including:
    • Devil Dog Pty Ltd v Cook [2017] WASC 27
    • Just Group Limited v Peck [2016] VSCA 334
    • Herbert Smith Freehills and White & Case
