Employers are increasingly placing post-employment restrictions on their employees. These restrictions can take several forms. First, employees can be prevented from engaging in conduct that is competitive with their employer’s business. Second, employees can be restricted from soliciting a prior employer’s customers, clients, and vendors. Third, employees can be prevented from soliciting employees and consultants of the prior employer for other employment or work. Finally, employees can be prevented from using or disclosing confidential or proprietary information about the employer.
Fortunately, there are restrictions on an employer’s ability to prevent employees from engaging in certain conduct after they have left the job. Contact the Firm to learn your rights.
