What a crazy few years it’s been… and times are still uncertain. The job market in the UK is unlike we’ve ever seen.
The war for talent is real and wage increases are fuelling unprecedented levels of movement between employers. Some have labelled it the “great resignation”.
For employers this presents challenges in terms of recruitment, retention strategies and importantly how best to protect your business interests.
Your people joining competitors can significantly damage your business and what if they walk out with your trade secrets, confidential information, pricing details or customer lists?
To help address some of these issues, we’re delighted to invite you to take part in an interactive webinar, on Microsoft Teams, where Nic Elliott and Gordon Monaghan from our Dispute Resolution & Employment Group will cover a range of topics including:
- Are restrictive covenants worth the paper they’re written on?
- How long can I protect my business for?
- What information is actually confidential?
- Can I really prevent someone joining a competitor?
We’ll also look at other ways to encourage your people to stay put, using alternatives to restrictive covenants.
We look forward to seeing you for the webinar!
