Employment - Contract of employment - Restrictive covenant - Non-compete clause - Injunctive relief - Claimant company seeking injunction to enforce employee restrictive covenant - Whether clause being void as wider than reasonably required for protection of claimant's interests - Whether clause being breached by defendant's intended employment.
Employment Contract of employment. The Chancery Division allowed the claimant company's application for an injunction to enforce an employee restrictive covenant. The nature of the interests that it was desired to protect was capable of justifying a restraint and, judged by the defendant's status as a consultant, not partner, the non-compete clause was not wider than reasonably required for the protection of the claimant's interests.
