Brearley and Bloch focus on the conflicts of interest which arise between employer and employee when the employee seeks to compete with the employer.Written by two specialist employment law practitioners, the book provides a comprehensive yet practical analysis of the law and good practice.

This second edition includes detailed consideration of recent conflicting cases which have given rise to uncertainty in a number of areas and takes account of the changes brought about by the Woolf reforms. It sets out the law, practice and appropriate strategy from both the employer's and employee's point of view. It gives guidance on how to prevent competitive conflicts arising and what to do when they occur, what activities an employee or ex-employee may undertake and what they may not, practical steps to avoid potential conflict when drawing up a contract and the remedies available for breach of contract.

Written with a strong practical emphasis, utilising checklists, flowcharts, precedents and case studies, it is an easy-to-use guide for all practitioners and professionals dealing with employment law issues.
