About The Seminar

Oscar Wilde is quoted as saying, “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.” The day of an employee’s separation – whether this is a cause for happiness or not – can often be the beginning of a new set of challenges, involving complex and sometimes conflicting rules. Workers have the right to leave and seek employment with a competitor, but they also owe ongoing obligations to the old firm. What constitutes fair competition, as opposed to unfair competition? How can you monitor the ex-employees’ conduct and decide whether to take action? What can you do to control the damage?

In this informative seminar, intellectual property and anti-competition attorney Glenn J. Dickinson of LightGabler will discuss the actions former employees often take to benefit themselves at the company’s expense, and how to effectively address those issues to protect your business. Topics covered will include:

  • Removal of company documents and data by a departing employee
  • When former employees solicit your customers and vendors to do business with a competitor
  • Attempts to recruit your current employees to move to a competitor
  • How to respond when an employee starts a competing business, using your company as a blueprint
  • How to handle negative reviews and comments on social media
  • Practical solutions for handling a former employee’s competitive behavior
  • Suggested language to include in your confidentiality agreements and separation documents

* Attendance is limited to no more than three people per company.
