Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
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 for your employer? If possible, please upload a copy of your contract on here?
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. It is not uncommon to have no end date on such restrictions, because the confidential information you have obtained through your work with them will belong to them no matter how much time has passed since termination. They have a right to protect their confidential information for as long as needed. This is different to other restrictions, such as no solicitation or not acting in competition with them, which will need to have a limited duration, but the same restrictions would not apply to Intellectual Property or confidential information, which could last indefinitely if needed (unless the information eventually becomes public).
