Protecting an Employer’s Business – Post-Termination Restrictions (PTRs) and Confidentiality
Post Termination Restrictions (PTRs) can be an effective way of protecting an employer’s business by restricting the post-termination activities of a departing employee. Courts in Hong Kong have readily enforced PTRs for the benefit of ex-employers, but what can an employer do to ensure best practices are met and a PTR is upheld?
Join our Partners Andrea Randall and Nick Dealy on Friday 9th October for an informative discussion on:
- What constitutes confidential information;
- What a PTR is, types of PTRs and why they are important;
- Tips for drafting effective PTRs;
- The Court’s approach to PTRs and enforceability in Hong Kong;
- Remedies for breaches of confidence and/or PTRs;
- The scope of springboard injunctions and the McLarens v Poon Chi Fai Corey case;
- Other case studies – GFI Securities v ICAP, Kao Lee & Yip v Edwards, and Bridge v Deacons.
