Lonmar Global Risks v West and others [2011] IRLR 138

Restrictive covenants

1 March 2011

Court of Appeal

Toulson J

This case illustrates various points about employees' duties not to damage the interests of their employers. Making plans for future employment is not a breach. Keeping other employees informed of one's plans is not a breach. Failing to report that an employee is planning to join a competitor is not a breach. But negotiating for future work with a client of one's employer is a breach.
