Fasken hosts seminar on restrictive covenants

Friday, May 12, 2017 @ 3:10 PM | By John Chunn

Setting restrictions on what an employee can do after termination of employment is vital for protecting your organization’s interests.

On May 16, a free seminar hosted by Fasken Martineau will review the options available to organizations and the challenges faced when relying on and enforcing those options. Fasken partners Alix Herber and Catherine Pollock and associate Rachel Younan, whose practices focus on labour and employment and human rights, will speak at the event.

You can participate in the seminar online via a webinar or at the firm's Toronto offices at 333 Bay St., Suite 2400.

The session will:
  • Review the different types of restrictive covenants available to employers, namely, non-solicitation, non-competition, and confidentiality;
  • Consider the circumstances where an employer would include these restrictive covenants;
  • Examine recent guidance from the courts on the enforceability of restrictive covenants; and
  • Discuss best practices in drafting restrictive covenants.
