The article addresses the scope of restrictive covenants. Restrictive covenants refers to agreements designed to stop employees from poaching staff or customers, or doing other things that would harm a former employer. Covenants must be carefully drafted so that they go no further than is reasonably necessary to protect the employer's legitimate interests. A British employer enforcing restrictions will usually apply for a temporary court order to stop an employee from breaking the restrictions until the main hearing takes place.
