Overview

This webcast will sort through the complexities. Employment law issues impact nearly all businesses, governmental entities and not-for-profit organizations. This update examines employer liability for discrimination of all types. We’ll also cover noncompete covenants and pitfalls for employers approached by employees of competitors. You’ll learn how nondisclosure and nonsolicitation agreements can provide many of the protections - without some of the downsides - of noncompetes. We’ll explore cases that show common ways employers violate employment laws. This webcast includes a 50-state survey of noncompete agreements, which addresses the various states’ positions on enforceability, restrictions and scope, standards, consideration and judicial revisions of noncompetes.
