Restraint Of Trade Commercial Agreement

Cook continued to work for the company until his resignation came into effect on June 30, 2016. In July 2016, Cook began working in a competing hydraulics company. Devil Dog sought an injunction against Cook to force trade restrictions.

The restriction of trade clauses is a common feature of many commercial agreements, including sales contracts, franchise agreements and employment contracts. Its purpose is to protect a party`s confidential information and transactions (including customer relations) from the use of a former employee (. B, for example, an employee, franchisee or salesperson) after the end of the contract. First, it is important to note that there are different types of restrictions on trade clauses. These include non-compete clauses for employees, business partners and confidentiality clauses that prevent the dissemination of certain information. Confidentiality clauses may apply to employees and business partners.

The Federal Court of Australia recently considered this issue as part of a franchise agreement in RPR Maintenance Pty/Marmax Investments. The court issued the injunction to prevent Cook from competing with Matchtec Hydraulics. However, the Court also expressed serious reservations about the adequacy of the 10 years of restraint and found that it was „located at the outer end of what may be considered appropriate.“ It remains to be seen whether this period will ultimately be considered appropriate and therefore enforceable if the case results in a final judgment. Whether a particular restriction clause is appropriate depends on the different circumstances of the case.

Some determining factors may include the length of time the clause is implemented and the size of the geographic area in which the clause is intended to be enabling. The Tribunal considered whether a franchise agreement, which required several 10-year restriction periods, was appropriate and fair. A trade restriction is deemed invalid. However, the presumption can be rebutted if the deference is justified. Whether the trade restriction is appropriate or not should be assessed on the basis of the circumstances that existed at the time the contract came into force (not at the time of the breach of contract). Among the remedial measures for breach of trade restriction are the following measures: the Court of Justice found that the scope of the restriction clauses adequately protected RPR`s legitimate interests, as it was the maintenance and success of its exclusive Spanline franchise for the South Coast territory. In considering the extent of the deference, the Court seeks to establish a clear link between deference and commercial activity, the profession or profession of contract donor.
