Summary

The law surrounding post-employment restraint of trade has increasing importance in workplace relations law and practice. The historical assumption that employers have a stronger commercial position and employees are vulnerable has been exploded in the 21st century by a highly educated and skilled workforce both geographically and occupationally mobile.

Concisely and with great clarity this book covers the history of common law tradition, questions arising before drafting a post-employment restraint; drafting a restraint of trade clause; non-solicitation of employees; other post-employment restrictions on an ex-employee; post-employment conduct and intellectual property rights; post-employment restrictive covenants in sale of business agreements; clients, ethics, writs and international perspectives; reform of post-employment competition.

Post-Employment Restraint of Trade: the competing interests of an ex-employee, an ex-employer and the public good identifies how the Australian judiciary charts its way through the twisting path to post-employment justice as well as surveying in brief that relevant practice in overseas jurisdictions.
