UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Can you give me the exact wording of the non dealing clause? What will you do with your shares?
Hi, Thank you. Ultimately as this clause restricts your ability to work in order for it to be enforceable it would have to properly executed, i.e signed and dated. Do any of the other employees have this restriction?
Hi, Thank you. I think he would struggle in court to enforce a restrictive covenant in an unsigned employment contract. Anything that restricts trade is generally against public policy. For a court to enforce a restrictive covenant it has to be properly executed and have a commercial purpose. If you have not signed it, it would be difficult to convince a court that you accepted it.
