Companies and organizations include "restrictive covenants" in employment agreements, to protect their trade secrets, confidential information and human resources. The restrictive covenants essentially place restrictions and limitations on an employee to deal, solicit or engage with employees, customers, clients of their former organization as well as on the manner in which he/she is permitted to use the information they become privy to during the course of their employment.
