About

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (1.00 hr)
When an employee leaves a company to start or join a competitor, it always raises multiple legal issues. Does the employee have an enforceable non-compete? Did the employee take company documents? Is the company’s confidential customer information protected as trade secrets? Now, the COVID-19 crisis adds another layer. How will these issues play out when companies have to lay off employees? Will courts be reluctant to prevent employees from working? Will shrinking industries seek to prevent poaching by those areas of the economy that are growing in the crisis? Join Zach Wolfe and Palomia Ahmadi, two litigators with significant experience in departing employee litigation, as they address these and other key issues.
