Offer Letters, Non-Competes and NDAs: What do they Really Mean?

Monday, October 15, 2018 at 3:30pm to 4:45pm


This workshop will review and discuss the kinds of offer letters, noncompetition agreements, nondisclosure agreements, and invention assignment agreements that new employees are regularly asked to sign as they join companies.  Using actual agreements, we will examine:

  • The extent to which offer letters truly mean what they say, and whether and to what extent they are negotiable;
  • Whether noncompetes are enforceable;
  • The restrictions actually imposed by the typical NDA (non-disclosure agreement) and Invention Assignment Agreement,
  • The special problems of planning to start your own company while still working. 

The instructors were for many years practicing attorneys – the focus of this workshop is on realistic, practical concerns.  No prior knowledge of the law is necessary.

Registration via requested via Careerbridge.
