In Seyfarth's sixth installment of our 2015 Trade Secrets Webinar Series, Seyfarth attorneys will discuss the significant statutory changes to several jurisdictions’ laws regarding trade secrets and restrictive covenants and pending legislation proposed in additional jurisdictions over the past year.  As trade secrets and non-compete laws continue to evolve from state to state in piecemeal fashion, companies should continually revisit their trade secrets and non-compete strategies in light of the evolving legal landscape and legislative trends.
Topics will include: 
  • Recent changes in Hawaii, Alabama, New Mexico, and Oregon;
  • The next wave of non-compete reform?  Proposed statutory changes to restrictive covenant law in Massachusetts and Wisconsin, and the federal MOVE Act;
  • Not-so-recent but still important: unenforceability in California, Oklahoma, and North Dakota; other quirks in Louisiana, Alabama, New Hampshire, and Illinois;
  • The split amongst states regarding whether continued employment is sufficient consideration for non-compete agreements.
