Irreparable Harm: Enforcing and Escaping Employee Non-Competition Agreements

Are employee non-competition agreements really enforceable?  Employers of every size use or at least consider using non-competition agreements in an attempt to protect their businesses and limit competitive activity by former employees. 

The Massachusetts Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division is hosting an expert panel to discuss the enforcement of these agreements, or lack thereof, and what effect proposed legislation in Massachusetts could have on this area of the law.  Seasoned litigators, Russell Beck of Beck Reed Riden, Patrick Curran of Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak & Stewart and Barbara Robb of Shilepsky Hartley, Rob, Casey, Michon join Michael Rosen at the offices of Foley Hoag to share with the Bar their experiences and thoughts on what employers – and employees – should be doing to protect themselves. 

A reception will follow to continue the discussion.
