Employment Contract of employment. The first and second defendants were former employees of the first and second claimant companies (the employers). The employers brought a claim against them alleging misuse of confidential information whilst employed with them. A preliminary issue arose as to whether, by implied acceptance, the first defendant was bound by post termination restrictions in a contract which had been given to him following a promotion, which he had read but had not signed, by virtue of his application for benefits arising under that contract. The Chancery Division answered in the affirmative.
