The Shifting Legal Tide Against Using Noncompetes in the Workplace

Taft attorneys Daniel Saeedi and Andrew Murphy will examine the use of noncompetition agreements and other restrictive covenants in the employee workplace during a webinar hosted by the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association.

The speakers will also discuss:

  • New trends in the law, such as positions of the Federal Trade Commission and the National Labor Relations Board, as well as recent case law. 
  • What these trends mean for employers using these types of clause, and what employers can reasonably expect in the coming year.
  • Practical alternatives to noncompetes that should be considered by employers.
