Can You Keep a Secret? Protecting your company through non-compete and non-solicitation agreements

February 12, 2014
In the wake of modern employment trends, employers are confronted with the practical reality that long-term employees have become the exception rather than the general rule. Employees move from one employer to the next — often to a competitor — where they may utilize confidential information gained from a previous employer.

Employers can help protect their businesses from unfair competition when they use well-prepared non-compete and non-solicitation agreements. In this 60-minute Employer’s Toolkit webinar, Mike Mattingly and Corey Asay discussed appropriate drafting and implementation, the effective legal limits of these documents in protecting your trade secrets and confidential information, and best practices relating to non-compete litigation.
