Non-Compete Clauses - Are They Worth It?
15:29
 

Hello and welcome to Episode 218 of the People Powered Business Podcast!

They are complex and complicated, and not all that easy to actually uphold, I know as I have first hand experience!

So when should you use them, and what are the things to consider if you’re planning to include them in your employment contracts?
