Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
How long have you worked there for? Is there a restriction in your contract about this?
Thank you. There should be no cause for concern as long as there is no restriction in your contract which prevents this or the employer’s business is not negatively affected by this. Similarly, you should not use your statis in the company to try and get your wife’s business to your employer when it may not be the most beneficial deal for them. Still, to be safe, it is always recommended to run this past the employer first so that there is transparency with your work and connections and then everyone knows where they stand, without any possible surprises in the future.
