Comms Council Employment Seminar - When Key Employees Resign

Posted 3 October 2019.

​When key agency employees resign, they walk out the door with more than a cardboard box.

They also leave with detailed knowledge of processes, contacts, future plans and clients - or even your existing employees. Competition from ex-staff is serious issue, and businesses are increasingly resorting to litigation to prevent disruptive fallout.

That’s why protecting your agency’s secrets, IP, IT and confidential information is essential.

About the Seminar

This agency-focused seminar will delve into the issue of unfair competition from ex-staff, the rights of employers and the duties of departing employees. It will shed light on drafting clauses for employment agreements, important updates regarding freelancers and how to smoothly and successfully transition employees out of your agency - without having to resort to litigation.
