Brett Coburn, Matthew Kent, and Kandis Wood Jackson will speak at this executive breakfast hosted by Alston & Bird.

Topics Include:

Restrictive Covenant Agreements in Georgia and Beyond. In an effort to protect their business interests, employers may require employees to sign restrictive covenant agreements. The enforceability of these agreements varies across jurisdictions, creating an ever-changing landscape of opportunities and pitfalls for employers. We will discuss case law developments under the Georgia covenant statute, as well as questions that remain unanswered by the courts. We will also explore changes to restrictive covenant laws in other states, while focusing on enforceability considerations and challenges arising in those jurisdictions.

Antitrust Law Primer for HR: No Poach Agreements. Department of Justice investigations, class action complaints, and even state attorney general lawsuits—no poach agreements continue to be a hot topic for businesses across the U.S. We will take an in-depth look at developments in this area and provide practical guidance on how to avoid being the next headline.
