Description

The law regarding non-compete clauses, and other restrictive covenants in the employment context, have been in a fair amount of flux over the last several years, leaving both employers and employees unsure as to whether these agreements are enforceable, in the first instance, and if so, to what extent.

The topics covered in this lecture will include:

  • How different jurisdictions evaluate whether a non-compete agreement is enforceable
  • How, at least in some jurisdictions, a fiduciary can permissibly solicit his old clients
  • The options that an employer has available when a disloyal employee or former employee violates his non-compete; and,
  • Some of the most powerful ways to defeat a non-compete agreement.

Participants of this class are welcome to receive a free copy of “To Compete or Not to Compete: The Definitive Insider's Guide to Non-Compete Agreements in New York” by clicking on the hyperlink to the book and filling out the book order form.
