Program Description

What happens when an employee serves notice or is terminated but then is immediately employed by a competitor? Traditionally, non- compete clauses would prevent this scenario from affecting your business. Increasingly, employers and employees alike are being challenged on enforceability of non-compete clauses.

  How should employers protect their position on termination of employee contracts?
  To what extent can an employer rely on the enforceability of these types of clauses to secure their interests?
  How does the law protect an employee who has signed up to such a clause?

For employers with operations in Africa and the Middle East, this webinar will provide useful insight to and guidance on potential challenges and solutions on the following:

  Latest trends on challenges to terminations of employment
  Drafting an appropriate non-compete clause into an employment contract
  Waiving/Enforcing a non-compete clause
  What to do if a non-compete clause is not in an employees contract but is now required
