Injunctive Relief

[ɪnˈdʒəŋ(k)tɪv | rəˈlif]

An injunctive relief refers to an  order by the court preventing an act, or compelling a person to perform an act, which has been requested off the court. For example, this may see a court compel an employer to cease collecting particular data from employees without their knowledge. 

These are categorised in two variables; which is the effect they have and the level of permanence; the first one is the mandatory injunctions in which the party (which could be the employer), is required to take a particular action in order to repair the case; the second one is the prohibitory injunctions in which the organisation ceases to a certain action.
