Depending on the circumstances, you can apply to the Court of Justice for an injunction that would prevent them from continuing to violate covenants. These can be general or very concrete and detailed, in which case they can be defined in a separate timetable on the back of the agreement. The client may want to protect his business interests by imposing restrictive agreements on the advisor to request a limited period after the end of the advisory agreement. A consultant can establish close relationships with the client`s customers, suppliers and employees. They can also acquire valuable confidential information that they could use to their advantage in future appointments with other clients. These clauses, «restrictive agreements after termination,» generally limit the former employee`s ability to work in competing companies, deal with customers, try to attract business from them or yell at other employees. Some states, including California, have tipped non-competition bans as excessive restrictions on competition. Explore your lawyer and check your state`s laws before you include these restrictive agreements in your trade agreements. The employer, who has invested in the construction of his own business and client will, in the development of his own processes and strategies as well as in the training of the employee, will want to impose this restrictive confederation to protect his interests.

All three types of agreements are designed to prevent someone from taking something from a company – customers, employees, businesses in general, proprietary products or business secrets. An employment contract is called a «service contract.» A consulting contract or other service contract is called a «service contract.» It is a trade agreement and each party can try to enforce the trade conditions it wants. As a general rule, however, a balancing act is necessary to include provisions strong enough to reflect the client`s interests, but which are not strong enough for the advisor to be treated as an employee or employee.
