Let’s Talk Confidential Information and Trade Secrets

Sorry, this webinar has ended.

Starting and ending on the right note with employees can go a long way to protecting your company’s confidential information and trade secrets.  However, how many of us take the time to ensure that new, or exiting employees really understand their continuing obligations when it comes to confidentiality?

This webinar will focus on practical tips for HR during hiring and termination discussions when the topic of confidential information and trade secrets is sometimes overlooked. Don’t let these critical employment phases pass you by without taking the opportunity to inform and/or remind employees of their continuing obligations.

During the webinar, we’ll take a look at the issues that can arise during hiring and termination, and we’ll focus on tips for HR professionals including:

  •  Discussing confidentiality obligations during the hiring process, including the duty not to use and/or disclose confidential information from a former employer, sets the tone for the rest of the employment relationship.
  •  Ensuring that confidentiality and/or non-compete agreements are signed at the start of employment can avoid issues at the end of the employment relationship.
  •  Conducting exit interviews can provide the company with information about the former employee’s plans and the potential for misuse of the company’s confidential information or trade secrets at a new employer.
  •  Providing an acknowledgment for a former employee to sign about their continuing obligations to the company regarding confidential information and trade secrets can aid in the enforcement process.
