Restrictive Covenants: Best Practices for In-House Counsel and HR Professionals in a Changing Legal Environment
New legislative and judicial initiatives are changing how non-competes and other restrictive covenants are being enforced. This program will discuss how in-house counsel and HR professionals are evolving to avoid new pitfalls that arise when newly hired employees bring pre-existing restrictive covenants with them. We will also examine that when employees with restrictive covenants depart, corporate attorneys and HR executives can utilize new best practices to maximize enforcement of their non-competes. In addition, we will look at whether indemnity agreements, reps and warranties, sign-on bonuses and deferred compensation and other practical strategies will affect the enforcement of non-competes in today’s new legal environment.
