Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
So just to confirm, the posters were put off off site? Also, is it possible to upload a copy of your contract on here so that I can take a look at it please?
OK thank you for your response. I will wait for you to get back to me shortly. Thank you
OK, thank you for your response. Leave it with me for now and I will review the relevant information and laws and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Also, please do not respond to this message as it will just push your question to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you.
Many thanks for your patience. Assuming that the services you offer do not compete with your employer’s business or their clients, in a way that would affect either of their businesses and earnings, I do agree that it is unlikely to be a conflict of interest. However, if you are advertising on company property, the employer will have the full right to decide what is advertised on site and what is not. You say that the smoking area is off site, but is it still on land which belongs to the employer? If so, they will have the legal right to decide whether you display your adverts there or not, and there is no automatic right for you to advertise there, even if not being allowed to do so would mean a loss of income.
If this was a completely public area, one which is not owned by the employer, then you can do as you wish and if you wanted to you could advertise there. It would then have to come down to the internal policies and for the employer to show you have breached them, which as mentioned above is unlikely if there is no competition or it is not affecting their business in any way.
