D v P

Employment – Contract of employment. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, upheld an injunction that prevented the defendant from acting in breach of certain of the post-termination restrictions contained within his contract of employment with the claimant. The starting point in the consideration of a claim by an employer to enforce an employee's negative covenant was that the ordinary remedy was an injunction. However, that was a discretionary remedy and might not be appropriate in all cases.
