I am about to take on my first part time PAYE employee (i.e. not a sole trader or ltd company consultant).
And I am just wondering about how to best structure their employment contract in order to prevent the employee from stealing my clients in the future?
Am I allowed to put this in a contract for them to sign?
I believe all my previous employment contracts had clauses about working in the same area for 24 months or not contacting clients for 6 months after leavng. Is there any clause more robust than this?
It is unlikely to happen because my employee can only work part time but better to be safe than sorry.
