This is a comprehensive non-solicitation agreement between a contractor and his client, providing limitations on the extent to which the contractor may solicit the employer's clients or customers.
After the contracted work ends, the restraint is simply limited in time and geographical extent.
The document will be most useful to businesses where the contractor or employee has regular contact with clients or customers as well as confidential information about your business.
Use as a stand-alone document or cut and paste to an existing form of contract.
Choose whether you want an absolute restraint or a restraint only within a geographical area, such as England or Derbyshire. Additionally, you can limit the solicitation to time, for example: for six months, or two years, as you prefer.
Note: common law provides that a person’s freedom to trade is very important. Your terms must be reasonable. If the contractor were to challenge this document for any reason, the less strict the restraints the more likely it is that a Court would uphold them as reasonable.
