Jon Parritz, head of Maslon's Competitive Practices Litigation Group and member of its Business Litigation, Labor & Employment, ERISA Litigation and Intellectual Property Litigation Groups, has authored an article in the October/November 2012 Issue of Executive Counsel. "Minimizing Risk when Hiring a Competitors Executive" highlights the risks that must be carefully managed by a company when hiring a competitor's executive, including those related to trade-secrets, non-compete agreements, and recruiting former employees.
"The right of employees to work free from unreasonable restraint and the right of employers to protect valuable confidential information and goodwill are both core values protected by the law," Jon states. "Following these guidelines will help your company compete fairly for the best employees."
