Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Yes, these covenants would cause you a problem. They would be enforceable as regards ***** ***** and 5. They have taken their time over asking you to sign these if your promoted position was last September. Any reason?
Yes it does. I would not advise you to sign this.
The clauses are quite specific in their terms; the issue is whether they are reasonable and that depends on your particular industry. I suspect they would be upheld and that is why you shouldn’t sign them. As you rightly say in your last narrative, they have given you the promoted post already but didn’t change your written terms at the time. I suggest that they can’t do so now.
