Employee Poaching: Are you safe or are you next?


“Consider this my two weeks’ notice.”These are words no employer wants to hear from a key employee. The unfortunate reality for all companies is, eventually, employees will leave. The question to ask yourself is do you have steps in place to make sure your business doesn’t walk out the door with them?


Unemployment rates are at an all-time low. While this is great for the economy, it can lead to a short supply of qualified workers. When employers cannot find unemployed workers to fill positions, they start poaching employees from competitors.  Your key employees learn about your company, processes, marketing strategies, upcoming product releases, sales strategies, employee roster and client list. This data that took years to develop becomes fair play for future employers unless you, as an employer, take necessary steps to protect this sensitive and confidential data.


Join us for lunch and hear Jonathan Crotty, Esq. share strategies for protecting your company using confidentiality agreements, non-compete agreements and non-solicitation clauses.
