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.
What is the wording of the clause and is this for new or ongoing employment?
Hi there. Please provide the information requested
OK and how long have you worked there for?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. Neither agreement prevents you from working for your employer’s clients after your employment with them terminates. However, you cannot disclose any confidential information you have gathered whilst working for them. So if you go and work for a client and then start discussing with them such confidential information from your time with the employer, you would be in breach. So just be mindful of that and ensure you do not disclose that information, but it won’t stop you from working for them.
Does this answer your query?
Are these methods linked to your employer specific to them and will you be using them in the new employment?
As you can imagine it could be a difficult thing to define and what the courts would look at is whether there is something unique and company-specific which is not just a general industry practice or information and that is what they will direct their attention to. So if there are such aspects to this, then try your nest to avoid using them in the future in order to comply with the NDA. Does this clarify things a bit more for you?
Yes only as long as the duration of the restriction is stipulated in the agreement
It specifically states 6 months from 29 August 2019
All the best
