Non-Solicitation Agreement & Clause in Toronto

A non-solicitation agreement & clause in Toronto is a contractual clause that tries to limit an employee who works or worked in the Toronto area from soliciting or taking business away from his or her former employer.

Employers using a non-solicitation agreement & clause in Toronto can find themselves in a complex work situation as the agreement & clause can be difficult to enforce if the language of the clause is not properly drafted or if a court determines that the terms of the clause are unreasonable or unnecessary to protect the legitimate business interests of the employer. Judges in Toronto can also choose to ignore these agreements when the restrictions imposed are too broad, vague or unreasonable given the position and duties of the former employee.
