Setting restrictions on what an employee can do after termination of employment is vital for protecting your organization’s interests. In this seminar, we will review the options available to organizations and the challenges faced when relying on and enforcing those options.

In this session we will:

  • Review the different types of restrictive covenants available to employers, namely, non-solicitation, non-competition, and confidentiality;
  • Consider the circumstances where an employer would include these restrictive covenants;
  • Examine recent guidance from the courts on the enforceability of restrictive covenants; and
  • Discuss best practices in drafting restrictive covenants.
