Employee departures are a fact of life in business. Whether voluntary or involuntary, it can sometimes be a difficult process. There are a variety of issues to consider - how will you keep your confidential information confidential? If you have a non-compete agreement, is it enforceable? What happens to the departing employee's social media profile and contacts? Do you need anti-raid provisions built in to your employment agreements?
You can help make employee departures as smooth as possible - and protect the interests of everyone involved - by arming yourself with some basic information and by following a few basic rules.
