Failure to understand the nuances of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements
Philip R. Bruce
It’s one thing to know what the law requires and what actions should be taken to ensure legal compliance. But what if you miss out on a step or two? Can certain mistakes or failures to take action be swept under the rug, or are they likely to catch up to you in the form of a lawsuit, financial penalty, audit or formal investigation?
In the presentation titled “Failure to understand the nuances of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements,” McAfee & Taft labor and employment attorney Phil Bruce discusses the various types of restrictive covenants employers can use to prevent or curtail competition in different ways, analyze case studies of what can go wrong when such agreements are incorrectly implemented, and offer best practices for ensuring the agreements hold up in court.
