springboard injunction
 n.— «In this case, the judge granted what is called a “springboard” injunction. The idea of a springboard injunction is to prevent employees taking advantage of previous breaches of contract. In this case, the court has granted an interim injunction preventing the ex-employees from dealing with ex-UBS customers and from seeking to persuade any other staff to leave.» —“Legal Q&A: Staff poaching measures” Personneltoday.com Aug. 26, 2008.
