Insurance Broking Practice and the Law
PROTECTING BUSINESS AND TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT
Individual brokers will often have in-depth information about their employer’s customers which they may try to exploit personally or on behalf of a new employer. This chapter briefly examines ways in which brokers may be restricted from using the confidential information they have obtained and the customer and colleague contacts they have made whilst employed.
