CLEonline.com, together with the Houston Bar Association (HBA), are pleased to present a special online CLE program in the area of labor and employment law. There are recurring legal issues that tend to come up when an employee or group of employees leaves a company to work for a competitor. Can the employer enforce a non-compete agreement? Do the employees have a fiduciary duty not to make preparations to compete? And don't forget about spoliation of evidence. Whether you represent the employer, the employee, or the competitor, you will learn what you need to know about these and other key issues in this comprehensive CLE seminar. This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on November 13, 2015. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session.



Some of the subjects to be discussed during this course include:

  • Can An Employer Enforce a Non-compete Agreement?

  • Impact of New Trade Secrets Statute

  • Do Employees Have a Fiduciary Duty Not to Make Preparations to Compete?

  • Spoliation of Evidence
