An Employment Lawyer’s Guide to Drafting: Restrictive Covenants - Webinar
Restrictive covenants come in many forms and provide an important safeguard for employers who understandably want to protect their business from unwanted competition or confidentiality breaches. For employees, they can seem unfair and unduly restrictive on their ability to earn a living once their current employment has ended.
