Post-employment restrictive covenants are critical tools for employers to protect their confidential information and trade secrets. In addition to concerns over employees taking valuable company assets, prudent employers should take pro-active steps to protect their competitive advantage in the face of technological advances and cyber attacks.

Please join us for this in-person seminar as we discuss:

  • Different types of restrictive covenants that employers should utilize and analyze current Georgia law,
  • Impact of the new federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 and the prerequisites to its use,
  • Practical steps to help employers and businesses ensure enforcement of covenants and maximize protection of trade secrets and confidential information, and
  • Essential Employer Handbook provisions and policies concerning confidential information, computer fraud and abuse, and technology resources.

Our Seminar will begin at 11:45 a.m. EST. Lunch will be provided and, as always, this seminar is free of charge.
