Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), Organization (Technical), Workplace (Technical)
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn that in today's information-driven workplace, don't get burned when a key player leaves your organization and sets up shop at a competitor! 

Your customers, data, and key relationships are the difference makers that give your company an advantage over competitors.  Prudent employers will protect their business interests by requiring employees to sign employment agreements containing post-employment restrictions, which come in various forms - e.g., non-compete clauses, non-solicitation clauses, non-recruitment clauses, and non-disclosure clauses. Federal and State laws reinforce an employer's ability to stifle ex-employees' competitive schemes ... you can do better than simply sending hollow cease & desist letters. Learn how to protect your company's goodwill with confidence, in a legally-enforceable way!

Learning Objectives:

  • Risk Management - How to share information with key employees ... but minimizing the downside risks when they leave.
  • The Employee Exit Process - learning how to spot issues, evaluate exposures, and protect the company against former employees, including strategic use of severance agreements.
  • Protecting Company Goodwill - preventing theft of intellectual capital and preventing espionage.
  • Litigation Strategies - how to stop ex-employees from hurting your company.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
