Toronto lawyer Eli Lederman says the takeaway from the decision is that if a company includes a morality clause in an agreement, it should make sure to structure it as broadly as possible so that it covers conduct that predates and postdates the signing of the contract.

“If a contracting party wishes to protect itself in order to terminate a contract based on past conduct, then that would need to be expressly spelled out in the agreement,” says Lederman, a partner at Lenczner Slaght Royce Smith Griffin LLP, who was not involved in the case.
