A court found that Mr. McCambridge had not breached an explicit contractual clause, nor did his actions constitute serious misconduct at common law. His employer appealed. Although I do not call the clause customary, it is a clause that appears in many consultant contracts. One reason for this is that consultants are often paid more than employees who do the same work. When you talk about your consulting compensation with collaborators who earn much less as consultants, both parts of the consulting contract cause problems. The easiest way to solve the problem is to prevent the advisor from discying their compensation. Most employees employed in private companies can participate in salary interviews with each other and with trade union representatives. .
