Hi all, I work for a Qld based employer who has a restraint clause on me which says if I leave, I can't work in my profession for someone else or myself for 3yrs (cascading down to lesser periods if a 'reasonable court' deems so); and the restraints area is Australia, then Qld and NSW, then NSW, etc. I just realised it says in the Deed that it's under Qld Employment Law. Can they enforce this in NSW where I work? Or is it legally invalid (thinking of the Restraints of Trade Act 1976 in NSW and legal precedent of Provida Pty Ltd vs Sharpe 2012) as it has no jurisdiction in NSW? My understanding is that the Company has to have a 'strong connection with NSW'. The head office is in Qld and they're NSW office is my old office - I was self-employed. All the clients here are also mine.
