An agreement restricting a person in the application of his or her legal rights is void on grounds of public policy, as it is contrary to the jurisdiction of the judicial authorities. It does not necessarily follow that the contract is void or unenforceable for both parties. If a contract is void, it is considered never to have existed, just as in cases where withdrawal is ordered. If an illegal employment contract has been concluded and an employee brings an action for unjustified dismissal (which is a legal right), there are at least two competing public policy objectives. These include: For example, A holds B at gunpoint and asks him to sell him his house at an extremely low price, and B does so accordingly, fearing for his life. In this situation, B was forced by A to enter into an agreement and their consent was therefore not obtained voluntarily. It can therefore choose to annod the treaty on this basis . . .
