The Employment Lawyers Association (ELA) has responded to the government’s consultation on measures to reform post-termination non-compete clauses in contracts of employment.
The ELA working
party that produced the response was co-chaired by Blackstone Chambers’ Paul
Goulding QC with Jonathan Chamberlain of Gowling WLG UK.
The consultation, run by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), was launched in December 2020 and closed on 26 February 2021. It follows another similar consultation on non-competes, run by BEIS in 2017.
ELA’s response is available here.
