In this webinar, Stuart Benzie shares practical tips on making and defending applications for springboard injunctions and discusses the making of employment related urgent interim applications during the COVID-19 pandemic. The springboard jurisdiction is a powerful, remedy that can protect businesses from losses caused by former employees exploiting an unfair advantage, and unfair start, obtained through any serious breach of their contract of employment. Stuart examines the principles that underpin the springboard jurisdiction and considers the impact of more recent authorities on the practical steps required to obtain such relief focusing on  Aquinas Education v Miller & others [2018] IRLR 518,where Stuart Benzie and Ruth Kennedy represented the successful respondents.
