An overview of non-compete agreements and the important nuances such as employee compliance; and a more in-depth discussion on the effects of social media such as:
* Who owns the social media accounts when an employee departs?
* Engineers - issues with posting on Facebook, blogs, etc. – could we lose trade secret status of a new program?
* Sales reps - what constitutes an improper solicitation via social media?
* Can we investigate an employee’s social media account if we suspect they are discussing confidential information?
