Some businesses believe that non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants can be freely broken, without consequence. Others think that non-competes should be applied, and enforced, across the board. The truth lies somewhere in the middle.
In our inaugural Chamber Counsel presentation, Jeffrey Harradine of Ward Greenberg Heller & Reidy will deliver concise, plain-spoken guidance on what makes a restrictive covenant enforceable. He will also provide suggestions on how to react when a restricted employee leaves your employment, and discuss the risk of derivative liability when hiring a restricted employee.
Chamber Counsel is a new series focused on how to enhance the growth of small to mid-size businesses through informed analysis and management of legal issues. In each session, an expert attorney who has seen a “worst case scenario” will educate our small business attendees on an important legal topic that is essential to the future of their organization. Potential topics could include, but not limited to: protecting your idea from the start; how to manage the hiring/departure of employees subject to restrictive covenants; how to assess the adequacy of your insurance coverage in light of your business risks; and effective methods of addressing workplace harassment/discrimination, and more. This is a great opportunity for small to mid-size companies to attend and learn how to be prepared and take steps now to avoid high legal bills down the road.
This special series is open to all employers. However, space is limited and Rochester Chamber members will be given priority access.
