Linked out by restraint?

Linked out by restraint?

By Luke Connolly

Practice & Procedure Technology 

Abiding by your restraints in a post-employment relationship may go deeper than you think and involve activities and conduct on social media. So you’ve decided to move on with your career and take up an exciting role with a competitor. The problem is you signed a restraint that prevents you from poaching employees and clients for six months. You move to your new employer and all starts well. You think you are abiding by your restraints and you haven’t contacted previous clients or employees and don’t intend to for the life of the restraint. However, you decide to update your LinkedIn page and give a positive summary of the new employer. You retain your LinkedIn contact list, including employees and customers of your previous employer. Soon after arriving at your new employer you post an article on LinkedIn inviting all your contacts to visit your new employer’s website saying how wonderful they are.
