Beware unsigned contracts when seeking to enforce post-termination restrictions

Employers who do not ensure that employees sign their employment contracts could face problems enforcing post-termination restrictions, as the recent case of Tenon FM Ltd v Cawley demonstrates.  The case also acts as a reminder that employers should keep evidence of their employee's agreement to any contractual changes and of the consideration provided for the employee agreeing those changes.   

Katie Mahoney and Peter De Maria consider the implications of the case.  Their article, available here, was originally published in the ELA Briefing and has been shared with their permission.
