The reason advanced for the distinction appears to be the technical legal difficulty of framing an injunction sufficiently precisely to cover information not reduced to some definite form. Searle and Co. v. Celltech Ltd (1982) The defendants had hired one Mr Carey following his departure from the plaintiffs’ employ, both firms being engaged in research into genetic engineering. Before leaving Carey gave the defendants the names of other employees of the plaintiffs and the defendants recruited them, all the employees recruited leaving the plaintiffs having given notice in accordance with their contracts of employment so that no question of inducing breach of contract arose.
In practical terms it can be very difficult for an employer to restrain the employee, both on account of the difficulties of proof he or she may encounter and because of the risks that litigation will indirectly reveal even more than it was sought to keep protected. Hence the practice, in some fields of commerce, of minimizing loss by extra-legal means. Apart from basic security provisions such as disclosure only on a need to know basis and even personal searches of employees leaving company premises, if it is felt that a salesman or saleswoman is imminently leaving for a competitor, steps may be taken to remove him or her, perhaps even sacking him or her with pay in lieu of notice, and in the meantime sending in replacements to canvas ‘his’ or ‘her’ customers for the employer before he or she can begin to canvass them for the competitor.
