Gamatronic (UK) Ltd and another v Hamilton and another

Employee – Employment contract. The Queen's Bench Division held, among other things, that the defendant former directors and employees of, and shareholders in, the first claimant company had, to some extent, breached fiduciary duties owed to it and they had breached contractual duties owed under the terms of their employment agreements by assisting in setting up, and acquiring a beneficial interest in, a competing business (Vox). However, the evidence did not establish that the defendants had failed to dedicate proper time and attention to their work for the first claimant. Accordingly, the claimant was not entitled to salary payments received by the defendants from the claimant or Vox.
