6th Annual Symposium on Employee Non-Compete Agreements, Confidential Information, and the Uniform Trade Secrets Act

9/16/2014 4:00 PM - 9/16/2014 6:00 PM

It has been argued that employee non-compete agreements (NCA’s), in addition to being unfair, have hurt innovation and enterprise creation in Massachusetts. Advocates for the status quo insist that the NCA’s are strictly scrutinized and necessary for the protection of confidential information of employers. The 188th General Court Senate overwhelmingly approved an economic development bill that included both a BBA-tweaked version of the 48-states-adopted Uniform Trade Secrets Act and a compromise mechanism to discourage overreaching employee NCA’s. These provisions were “held in conference.” In the BBA’s sixth summer symposium on these issues, legislators, administrators and lawyers advocating or advising on reform will provide an overview of recent developments and issues going forward. Arguments will be made for the status quo. There will be opportunity for attendee questions and presentation of views.
