Regulating employee conduct in the workplace becomes more challenging every day with advancing technology such as email and the Internet. While it offers exponential opportunities, technology is also changing the competitive business environment. For lawyers, executives and human resource professionals, the impact is profound.
Although intangible assets have always been worth protecting, the value of trade secrets, customer relationships and other intangible assets has risen dramatically. At the same time, advancing technology makes it easier for competitors or outgoing employees to convert substantial amounts of data. New laws, such as the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and Economic Espionage Act, have at a minimum complicated rights and obligations surrounding use of information and competition. Litigation over trade secrets and noncompete agreements has risen dramatically, and with it the demand on human resource professionals and counsel to protect intangible assets from former employees and competitors.
This two-day seminar is designed to provide business people and their counsel with knowledge and tools they can use right away to protect trade secrets, customer relationships, and other intangible assets, and to successfully address the mingling of human resource and technology issues in today’s workplace.
