Q: How do I protect myself against my employee resigning and taking my customers?

My employee has built up a good relationship with my customers. How do I protect myself in the event that my employee resigns and tries to take my customers with him/her?

A:

You should probably consider getting your employee to sign a Restraint of Trade Agreement. Restraints of Trade are useful to have if you as an employer have a “protectable proprietary interest”.
