Restraints of Trade in the NT
Restraints of trade in the NT (Northern Territory) are clauses which may be included in your employment contract to prevent you from doing certain things that compete with your current or former employer, or in a business sale agreement to prevent the seller from starting up a business in competition with the business which is sold.
In each of the Australian States and Territories (including the NT), restraint of trade clauses are generally regulated by the common law and some provisions in the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth).
The only exception to this rule is in New South Wales, which also has additional legislative rules for courts interpreting restraint of trade clauses.
