In a new judgement, the Danish Eastern High Court had to consider if an employee was entitled to compensation pursuant to a non-solicitation clause, which the company had attached by mistake. The court found that the employee neither knew nor should have known, that a mistake had occurred. Even though the employee was already covered by an old non-solicitation clause, without entitlement to compensation, the company became bound by the new clause and had to pay compensation.
