PandaTip: If one of the parties is to inform the other party of the information relating to this non-invitation agreement, it must do so according to the methods described below.

In addition to restrictions on trade doctrine, UK competition law and EU competition law can undermine the applicability and legality of a non-invitation agreement. Non-advertising agreements may be anti-competitive agreements under Chapter I of the Competition Act 1998 and/or Article 81 of the EC Treaty. The review of these areas of law goes well beyond the scope of this note. For more information on UK and EU competition law, visit the OFT website at www.oft.gov.uk/. If competition issues arise, you should seek specialized legal advice. John works in the distribution industry and is a salesman for Company A.

A non-demand agreement for employees often applies to a non-compete clause. Restrictions on trade doctrine may undermine the applicability of a non-invitation agreement. The provisions of the treaty that amount to trade restrictions are, on the face of it, unenforceable. As a general rule, they are only applied by the courts when they are proportionate to the particular interests of the parties involved (although there are some exceptions). For it to be enforceable, courts often require that a non-competition or non-binding clause be sufficiently time-limited. For example, a more enforceable non-compete agreement could prohibit former workers from working for a competitor for a period of two years after leaving the employer with which they signed the non-competition agreement.
