Let me see if I can help and please rate positive.

Generally if you ignore a restrictive covenant the holder of the covenant can take you to court - seek an injunction to prevent the breach and potentially seek damages and costs against you. The key will be whether the restrictive covenant if in an employment contract was fair and not inappropriately restrictive at the time that it was entered into. Happy to discuss but please rate positive

Hello, can you please provide details of the restrictive covenant and what exactly the employer is trying to prevent you from doing?
