After your employees, your goodwill, IT systems, confidential information and trade secrets are your most important business assets.
In addition to monitoring the activities of your employees whilst they work for you, consideration must also be given to the risks posed by departing employees. They may copy customer lists, encourage suppliers to cease working with you, solicit your emloyees and generally compete in a manner that is detrimental to your business interests.
By implementing proper contractual documentation and taking appropriate steps you can protect your business and your future.
