In this contract the specific restrictions are contained in a Schedule to
the main agreement. The contract requires that the employee provides any
prospective new employer with a signed copy of the Schedule so that they

non-solicitation clause provides that for a period of time after
termination of employment the employee can’t poach certain employees with
whom the employee had substantial dealings or who reported to the employee.
The non-compete clause provides that for a period of time after termination
of employment the employee will not compete with the company’s business,
will not deal with the company’s customers (with whom the employee has had
substantial dealings) in competition with the company’s business and for a
more limited period will not solicit the company’s customers (with whom the
employee has had substantial dealings) at all, even if not in competition
with the company’s business.
Restrictive covenants should be no wider than is necessary to protect your
“legitimate business interests”. If their scope is too wide, they may not
be enforceable. Please ensure that you carefully consider each restrictive
covenant, removing any that are not relevant to your particular business
and to the specific employee. Ensure that time and geographical limits are
appropriate and reasonable to the nature of your business.
