Non-traditional Non-Competes: Judges don’t like to enforce non-competes, states are restricting them, and that agreement your client’s employee signed may no longer be enforceable, so what alternatives are available to protect your client’s legitimate business interests?


This panel of experienced employment litigators will discuss alternative approaches to protecting legitimate business interests in these and other tricky situations. The panel will discuss when to use and how to draft enforceable alternative provisions, such as forfeiture provisions, trade secret and confidentiality clauses, and post-employment restrictive covenants. We will review applicable cases, trends nationally and in North Carolina, and discuss practical advice on alternative approaches to resolving disputes in this area.
