News 13 - 19th July 2019

Published 19 July 2019

This week’s edition looks at recent Case Law which provides much needed clarity on three issues. Firstly, a case dealing with ‘restrictive covenants’ (for the first time in 100 years). The case in question outlined both the need for the employer to demonstrate a verifiable interest warranting protection and underlined that ‘restrictive covenants’ should not exist to merely place restrictions on departing employees.(1) Secondly, tackling an issue more rooted in the twenty-first century, an EAT decision has provided guidance on the issue of covert recording.  In the age of smart phones, covert recording is increasingly becoming a routine tactic in employment cases and the latest guidance has set a useful precedent for their future use.(2) Finally, we take a cursory look at the new Stalking Protection Act 2019 and what it will mean for future Employment Law.(3)
