Heeney Vokey LLP’s Toronto employment lawyers have extensive experience in evaluating and/or challenging the enforceability of restrictive covenant clauses in employment agreements. Restrictive covenants, such as non-solicitation clauses and non-competition clauses, serve to place post-employment obligations on employees. Heeney Vokey LLP’s experienced employment lawyers are highly knowledgeable in the area of restrictive covenants and their enforceability, and can ensure that you are not subject to unfair or unreasonable restrictions.
Restrictive covenant clauses can have a significant impact, and in many cases serve to place limitations on an ex-employee’s interaction with clients, employees and future employment opportunities. For this reason, it is important to contact a lawyer to determine the validity of the terms of such clauses as well as their enforceability. It is also critical that you get advice before you accept a position with a new company where you have restrictions in place. Robinson Heeney can assist you in how to transition to a new company and provide you with practical tips to try to avoid costly litigation. Robinson Heeney also has significant experience in litigation relating to these restrictions.
