Restrictive Covenants and Non-Compete Agreements and Illegal Interview Questions
(How HR Professionals Should Navigate Them)
Presented By: Stephen E. Trimboli
HR professionals frequently advise on restrictive covenants and non-compete agreements. But have you considered how such agreements may affect your professional development and career advancement when you are considering alternative career opportunities?
HR professionals also offer advice regarding illegal interview questions. But how should HR professionals respond when they themselves are confronted with an illegal question during an interview?
This discussion, targeted to HR professionals, will address these issues. We will discuss what to look out for if you are asked to sign a restrictive covenant/non-compete agreement, describe the limits of their enforceability, and suggest what to if you are looking to move on after having signed one. And we will suggest “best practices” to follow when an HR professional responds to a question during an interview that should never have been asked.
