Restrictive Covenants: An Effective Sword and Shield

There has been a recent surge in employee movement from job to job, and a related increase in litigation, with employers seeking to protect their confidential information and business relationships. It is now more crucial than ever for companies to find effective ways to prevent their former employees from damaging or interfering with their businesses, and to prevent their new employees from embroiling them in legal battles with their former employers. To help you understand the nuances of restrictive covenants, this program will cover, among other things:

  • Recent notable decisions in restrictive covenant law in various states
  • Best practices for implementing enforceable restrictive covenant agreements, including on-boarding and departure musts
  • Use of restrictive covenants in equity plans and deferred compensation plans
  • Which restrictive covenants best meet the needs of your company, such as:
    - Extended notice provisions
    - Garden leave provisions
    - Client non-solicitation and non-service provisions
    - Employee non-raid provisions
    - More restrictive non-competition provisions
