Non-compete, no-solicitation and confidentiality agreements

Employees today are more likely than ever to change jobs in search of better opportunities. Oftentimes, that change entails going to work for another business in the same industry; sometimes, it means starting a competing business.

While Oklahoma has one of the strictest anti-non-compete laws in the nation, state law does allow the use of other restrictive covenants as a way to promote fair competition. But just because you have a signed agreement in place doesn’t mean it’s enforceable.

During this one-hour complimentary webinar, McAfee & Taft attorneys Courtney Bru, Jake Crawford and Charlie Plumb discuss the do’s and don’ts of unfair competition, including the legal safeguards employers can implement to protect themselves from unfair competition when an employee departs. They’ll also discuss what employers should be doing when hiring an employee from a competing business.

Topics include:

  • The enforceability of non-compete, no-solicitation and no-poaching agreements in Oklahoma and other states
  • Best practices for drafting restrictive covenants
  • Challenges faced by multi-state employers and why a “choice of law” provision may be disregarded in court
  • Why a well-crafted confidentiality agreement can be your secret weapon against unfair competition
  • What to expect when restrictive covenant disputes arise
