An employer can insert clauses into an employment contract to restrict employees’ freedom to work in certain types of industries even after they have left the company.
However in some cases these restrictive covenants will be deemed to be unenforceable and void if they are too strict and onerous. If part-way through employment, an employee is asked to sign a new contract that contains restrictive covenants, they should seek legal advice.
