A regional guide to 'restrictive convenants'

28 March 2014

Corrs Chambers Westgarth has contributed to "A regional guide to 'restrictive covenants'". The chapter on Australia is authored by partner Heidi Roberts, senior associate Chris Leong and consultant Anthony Forsyth.

There are few areas of employment law which differ as significantly between countries as the laws relating to post-termination restrictions. The increasing trend for key employees to have international responsibilities, be globally mobile, and for post-termination restrictions to apply across many different jurisdictions is a challenge. In reality when enforcement issues arise the decisions taken in the early stages of action may determine the outcome weeks or months later.

This is why the Guide to Restrictive Covenants was created, serving over 14 key countries. Within are discussions on non-compete covenants, non-solicitation covenants and non-solicitation of employees’ clauses, issues relating to employee benefits, pension, stock plans and more.

An essential publication for anyone involved in employment law, it has been compiled by lawyers from a major international law firms, as well as partner companies based in other jurisdictions.
