The fight for talent: How recent developments to restrictive covenant laws will impact your retention and recruitment efforts

April 19, 2018|Milwaukee, WI|11:30 AM - 1:00 PM


Talent acquisition and retention is the name of the game in most industries and employers frequently rely on anti-raiding, no-hire and anti-poaching agreements with employees and service providers to protect their talent. Recent developments under Wisconsin law, namely the January 2018 Supreme Court decision in the Manitowoc Company v. Lanning case, have significantly limited what kinds of employee non-solicits will be enforceable with respect to Wisconsin employees. Employee non-solicit agreements between service providers, suppliers and competitors are not immune from scrutiny under Wisconsin law and federal Antitrust Guidance.

This presentation will evaluate the current state of the law for companies that are seeking to retain talent as well as employers looking to hire. We will also discuss the litigation trends and strategies we have seen in this area of the law both locally and nationally.

CLE credit is currently pending for this event.
