Recently, various agencies of the federal government have begun challenging standard provisions in employment agreements as unlawful or too restrictive. Based upon concerns about protecting employee rights and the power of the government to investigate violations of law, the government is now bringing lawsuits and other proceedings in order to attack typical provisions in non-disclosure and separation agreements like those requiring confidentiality or non-disparagement. The Securities and Exchange Commission, National Labor Relations Board and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission are some of the federal agencies taking aim at employment agreements.

Join attorneys from Foley Hoag's Labor & Employment and White Collar Crime & Government Investigations groups on January 20, 2016 for a high-level panel discussion on how employers can avoid being targeted by agencies when drafting employment agreements. Our panelists will share their insights on how to minimize vulnerabilities in your employment agreements.

Topics to be Discussed:

  • An overview of efforts by agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Labor to police terms of employment agreements.
  • Understanding and managing risks associated with drafting employment agreements.
  • Best practices and strategies for ensuring that that your agreements are not targeted.
