Unemployment is low. Demand for skilled workers is high and employees have more job mobility than ever before. The opportunity to recruit new talent and leadership can be a boon for businesses. But increasing mobility also carries risks. Your trade secrets and confidential information may be vulnerable, and if you’re not careful, new hires may join with a competitor’s sensitive information in hand. Do you know what it takes to protect your company when hiring and when employees depart? Join Cozen O’Connor for a look at recent developments in the landscape of employee mobility and trade secrets, including a discussion of restrictive covenants, administrative agency requirements around confidentiality provisions, social media concerns, and more. We will also provide practical steps businesses should consider to protect their valuable assets and to avoid liability with competitors.
