How to Avoid (and Resolve) Trade Secret Claims Against Employees

A free webinar presented by the MWELA Bench Bar Committee, and co-sponsored by the Federal Bar Association Maryland Chapter.

Companies zealously protect their trade secrets—often their most valuable assets—including by broadly labeling their proprietary information as “trade secrets” and imposing non-competes on their workforce. However, in recent years, such measures have come under increased scrutiny because of their chilling effect and impact on competition in the marketplace. This panel will provide a brief overview of the Uniform Trade Secret Act and discuss how to prevent trade secret disputes in the workplace before they arise. The panelists will explore best practices for managing trade secret litigation and how to avoid common pitfalls. They will examine how employees can use confidential company information to support their legal claims against employers within the bounds of the law. In addition, the panel will assess how federal regulators have limited workplace policies that mandate employees’ silence, including through non-disclosure and non-compete provisions.

This event does not offer CLE credit. Registrants will receive Zoom login details on the day before the event.
