With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic instability, post-employment restrictive covenants and their enforceability remain key considerations of employers. Employee mobility issues in the current labor shortage have underscored the importance of protecting company assets, with employers balancing recruitment against workforce raiding by competitors. At the same time, these restrictions have come under increasing scrutiny from lawmakers in the DMV region (consistent with the trend nationally, as well as the Biden Administration’s push for federal reform of noncompete law), resulting in a confusing patchwork of state laws that leaves well-intentioned employers grappling with how best to protect their legitimate business interests in guarding their confidential and proprietary information without alienating their highest-performing employees.

Speakers will discuss:

  • Recent legislative developments in the DMV region, particularly in Virginia and D.C., as well as across the rest of the country
  • Creative new contract and policy approaches used to address unfair competition and trade secret protection
  • Strategies to help get the upper hand whether defending a post-employment restriction or seeking to invalidate one
  • Tips for protecting company assets as well as hiring safely from competitors and conducting due diligence in the new era
