Originally Held: Thursday, September 27, 2012

Time: Noon to 1:15 p.m. (EST)
Cost: Complimentary

Presented by Michael J. Barton

Topic Overview:

When a company is sued by a former employee, or when a former employee departs the company for a competitor or leaves with the company’s confidential information, company officials often scrambles to control as much damage as possible. When the dust settles, they often wonder what they could have done differently – and proactively – to prevent the same issues in the future.

During Plunkett Cooney’s webinar, “Protecting Your Company & its Secrets,” business litigation attorney Michael J. Barton and former employment litigation attorney Catherine M. Derthick discussed various ways to proactively minimize employment-related liability. From confidentiality and non-competition agreements to employee handbooks, this webinar focused on practical and effective ways to eliminate related problems before they crop up.
