In 2017, a Court granted injunctive relief in a case concerning a 10-year restraint of trade clause. It’s never been more pertinent to look at the law in this area and consider what employers can do to enforce their restraint of trade clause. This session looks at the drafting of your restraint of trade clauses to the practicality of enforcement.  It covers:

  • Restraint of trade clauses and making them enforceable
  • Cascading clauses – do they need to be rethought?
  • Restraint of Trade - ensuring restraint period is relative with position
  • Restraining future employment – when will it be appropriate to protect the legitimate interest of the employer?
  • Restraint of trade clauses and LinkedIn
  • Recent cases, including:
    • Devil Dog Pty Ltd v Cook [2017] WASC 27
    • Just Group Limited v Peck [2016] VSCA 334
    • Herbert Smith Freehills and White & Case

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
