Join Fisher Phillips for our 3rd annual two-part webinar program focused on employee mobility and its interplay with restrictive covenants and the protection of trade secrets.
The relentless evolution of technology, including game-changers like generative AI, and a nationally fractured approach to legislating and regulating the use of restrictive covenants, present obstacles to employers that must manage sensitive information while executing complex staffing strategies. As the economy lurches closer to the full adoption of a post-pandemic “business as usual,” employers need to take stock of all that has changed, and all that remains the same, if they are to successfully protect their most vital interests.
Day 1 topics include:
- The potential implications of a data breach when an employee leaves the company, including guidance concerning state data breach notification laws and best practices for how to reduce the likelihood of a triggering breach in the first place.
- The three major points to consider when determining whether to pursue litigation over trade secrets and/or non-compete issues.
Day 2 topics include:
- Restrictive covenants in the context of M&A activity, including uses to consider during due diligence, drafting processes as part of the buy-side deal team and how the structure of a deal may impact assignment and drafting options.
- The latest legal and regulatory developments concerning restrictive covenants, at the federal and state levels, with emphasis on the FTC’s proposed ban on non-competes and how recent action by the NLRB stands to impact employers’ approach to protecting trade secrets.
