Employment - Contract of employment - Restrictive covenant
Employment Contract of employment. The clause relied on by the employee in her contract did prohibit shareholdings in any business carried on in competition with the former employer and was impermissibly wide and in restraint of trade unless it could be severed in some way. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division held that the clause was however, a single covenant which had to read as a whole and could not be severed.
