    Turner and others v Commonwealth & British Minerals Ltd [2000] IRLR 114 CA (0 other reports)

In Turner and others v Commonwealth & British Minerals Ltd [2000] IRLR 114, the Court of Appeal holds to be reasonable a covenant in a severance agreement which, properly construed, restricted former employees and directors of a company from competing for 12 months in any aspect of the company's business being carried on, when their employment terminated, in which they were actually involved during their employment. However, the company had failed to establish a breach of the covenant.
