ABSTRACT

The study was carried out in order to assess the effectiveness and applicability

on the law governing restrictive covenants in Uganda with reference to several

states. The study aimed at understanding the wide analysis on the law of

restrictive covenants, different types of restrictive covenants, remedies for the

breach and ordinarily how courts interpret the restrictive covenants.

Data was collected through different research using text books, internet, and

library materials. A clear abstract on the law governing restrictive covenant in

Uganda is much lacking but a wider perspective gives its gist.

The simple fact is that a well-constructed, reasonable restrictive covenant is the

single most effective means by which an employer can protect its business

against future competition from departing employees and the theft of confidential

data by departing employees. The courts are increasingly unwilling to afford

employers the protection of implied contractual terms, where they have failed

through either a combination of ignorance or laziness, to include express

restraints in their employment contracts at the outset of employment.

In summary, contractual term restricting an employee's activities after termination

of employment is void for being in restraint of trade and contrary to public policy

unless the employer can demonstrate that: It has a legitimate proprietary interest

to protect. The protection sought goes no further than is reasonable having regard to the interest of the parties and the public interest.
