Labor & employment partner Mark Terman was quoted extensively by SHRM, discussing a recent California employment lawsuit filed by Apple involving a former employee who left to work for a competitor. Terman spoke with SHRM about the limited circumstances in which noncompete agreements are allowed under California law, and provided employers with tips to protect their trade secrets and strengthen their employment agreements with employees.
"Contrary to common belief, some agreements not to compete with current or former employees are enforceable in California. And for good reason." Mark Terman, SHRM
