Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know why did not have an agreement?
Also please confirm that it was never discussed that they would never approach customers?
Due to the nature of the industry it would be nearly impossible to get drivers to agree to this in writing. Taxi drivers are an interesting bunch of characters. However it is common practice that drivers would agree verbally that they would not give out their details to the a companies customers. The question is can they or are they able to contact my customers after leaving working with me on the grounds they have inside information about prices, volume of work, customer expectation.. and then go in at a lower / reduced rate and try and take my customer base.
They are not.
You could argue it is a breach of bad faith which is an implied term, but in any event unless the customer consents it would be a breach of the Data Protection Act.
Therefore you could stop them by seeking an injunction
You would need to complete form N1
You are asking the Court for an order that they do not contact customers.
If they do then they would be in contempt of Court and could be warned, fined, or sent to prison
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
