The healthcare and life sciences industries continue to experience rapid transformations and unprecedented legal challenges; it’s crucial for organizations to navigate these issues effectively.

Companies operating in the healthcare space often need to address industry-specific labor and employment issues, and must be prepared to reshape their workplaces, policies, and procedures to comply with constantly evolving state and federal laws.

Leech Tishman and Nelson Hardiman are offering a multi-part webinar series to provide comprehensive insight into the legal landscape affecting the healthcare workforce, covering topics such as regulatory compliance, litigation trends, and emerging issues.

Throughout 2024 and early 2025, our attorneys will host 1-hour webinars which discuss critical employment issues, provide practical guidance, and cover best practices to address employer obligations. Whether you’re a healthcare provider, health systems administrator, or HR manager, this webinar series will offer valuable insights to help you navigate the complex intersection of labor law and healthcare.

Non-Competes, Non-Solicitation, and No-Poach Agreements

Join us for the first webinar in our series, where Leech Tishman attorney Philip A. Toomey and Nelson Hardiman attorney Harry Nelsonwith moderation by Nelson Hardiman attorney Adella Katz, will provide guidance on drafting enforceable agreements that strike a balance between protecting the company’s interests and respecting employees’ rights.

Recent legislation (SB 699 and AB 1076) has implications for non-compete agreements in California. These laws void non-compete agreements and require employers to notify employees that any such agreements they may have signed are void. This change in California’s employment landscape, requires adjustments in drafting and updating employment contracts.

In this webinar, our speakers will address key laws and industry trends, as well as practical suggestions for how companies can develop effective strategies to protect their interests, retain top talent, and foster innovation in an increasingly competitive market landscape.

 This 1-hour presentation will include:

  • A review of recent legal developments surrounding no-poach, non-solicitation, and non-compete agreements
  • Discussion on the enforceability of non-compete agreements, including factors such as geography, scope, duration, and the legitimate business interests of the employer
  • Strategies for mitigating legal risks and potential litigation through effective procedure drafting, employee education, and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms
  • Realities and new FTC regulations, patient non-solicitation/advisory rules, employee mobility, no-poach agreements, and antitrust
  • Importance of regularly reviewing and updating agreements in accordance with changing laws and industry standards
