This course will focus on the legal and practical limits on companies putting restraints on certain former employees to prevent disclosure and use of proprietary information. Federal and state laws require that such restrictions be reasonable as to length, geography, substantive reach and category of personnel affected. But disputes invariably arise over the enforceability or extent of restrictive covenants and non-competes, as well as over proof that violations have occurred. Resolution of disputes can be expensive and counterproductive.
In a two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss current legal developments concerning these agreements and their enforceability. Speakers will also offer tips for effective practices to be followed in hiring and managing departure of high-level and specialized-knowledge employees.
