    Event Synopsis:
    Restrictive covenants are important tools that can be vital for a company's success. However, they should always be drafted with considerable care to avoid court scrutiny and ultimately be enforceable. Employment agreement cases may result in significant damages which employers must always keep in mind. Moreover, restrictive covenants should always be reviewed and updated to comply with various federal and state laws on employment and antitrust.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the latest and significant updates related to restrictive covenants and non-compete agreements. They will also review recent case law on the topic and give insights on how courts determine whether or not restrictive covenant clauses in an employment agreement are enforceable. The audience will learn best practices in drafting and enforcing restrictive covenants in an employment contract without running afoul of employment and antitrust laws.
