Avoiding Common Pitfalls of Non-Compete, Trade Secret and No-Rehire Provisions in Employment Agreements
Presented by Jordan B. Schwartz & Megan S. Shaked

Employment agreements and settlement agreements can be an effective way to address employer concerns regarding unfair competition and trade secret protections. Equally important is avoiding the pitfalls of noncompliant provisions. This webinar will review the scope of permissible provisions relating to non-compete, trade secret and no-rehire provisions, state law efforts to push back on overly broad and restrictive agreements and best practices for avoiding potential employment claims.

Participants will learn about the following:

• Restrictions on entering into non-compete agreements
• Options for protecting trade secrets through use of employment agreements
• Limits on no-rehire provisions in settlement agreements

The webinar will also address steps employers can take to achieve compliance including evaluating current personnel practices and updating employment and settlement agreements.
