BLS Employment Law Committee responds to two consultations

Birmingham Law Society  employment law committee has responded to two consultations published by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.

The committee’s Chair, Charlie Rae comments:

The Employment Committee has responded to a government consultation proposing significant changes to non-compete restrictive covenants which raises several interesting issues, such as whether they should be banned altogether or require the beneficiary to pay for the duration of the restriction. 

The Committee has also responded to a government proposal to extending the ban on exclusivity clauses to make them unenforceable in contracts where the guaranteed weekly income is below the Lower Earnings Limit of £120 per week.
