My question is on the Restrictions imposed on my Contract

Customer Question

My question is on the Restrictions imposed on my Contract after termination. I work for a company that manufacture and produce disinfectants. There are 5 restrictions mainly. It says that I am not to engage, work or be involved with similar business competitors or any business that deals with anti microbial products or start a similar business for the next 6 months post termination. Does this mean I cannot work for 6 months? Or does this only cover within UK (because I have opportunities to start a fresh on EU countries.

Hello my name is***** am a solicitor and I am happy to help you today.

Does the clause give any form of geographical restriction?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Hi Jenny,
I don't think it gives any geographical restriction but page 14 clause 26 says 'in accordance with the law of England and Wales'. I would like to start my own business of the same nature. Can I do this in the UK? If not can I register in the EU states and sell it online during the restricted period to start with while I remain in the UK? Please could you look at clause 17 the Restrictions (please see attached. sorry it won't let me attached the whole doc) and advice me what I can or cannot do? Thank you and look forward to hearing from you.

Does this agreement cover only England and Wales? Does the restrictions prohibit me from working in the same field for the next 6 months? or does this only cover direct competitors?
Thank you
