Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
It is highly likely that through his actions this person is in breach of contract and you could consider taking further steps to try and prevent further damage or to seek compensation for damage already done.
Before you consider any formal legal action you should contact the person directly, advise them that they are acting in breach of contract and remind them of exactly what restrictions they are under and warn them that unless they stop doing what they are doing immediately, you will have no other option but to commence legal proceedings.
Your options then would be to either:
The initial warning letter does not have to come from a solicitor but you would engage one to send it as it could carry more weight and show that you are serious about this. The legal action again does not have to be done using a solicitor but it may be advisable to do so because of the complexity of the process, especially if you are seeking an injunction. So the initial ‘warning shot’ would be the formal letter you send him which can come out as soon as you would like it to, as to legal action then anything you do would inform him that you have started a formal claim but then it would depend on the process and availability at the courts, coupled with the fact it is the festive period, it may not happen immediately but he would be aware that you are taking formal steps to deal with this.
