Trade secrets and personal information are key assets for most employers. Join us for a webinar to discuss recent developments affecting the protection of trade secrets in California (including restrictive covenants) and the handling of personal information.

Topics will include:

  • How do recent Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA) developments, including the applicability of the DTSA to misappropriation before its enactment date and immunity for whistleblowers, affect employers?
  • Are employee non-solicitation agreements still enforceable in California after AMN and Barker?
  • What does the newly enacted California Labor Section 925 mean for employee mobility?
  • How does the expansion of data protection laws, from the EU General Data Protection Regulation to the California Consumer Privacy Act, affect employers?

Our panel includes:

  • Eric Akira Tate, Global Co-Chair, Employment & Labor, Morrison & Foerster LLP
  • Christine Lyon, Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP
  • Mary Race, Associate, Morrison & Foerster LLP
  • Heriberto Alvarez, Associate, Morrison & Foerster LLP
