Employment Law - Employee breaches 2021 - 13 May 2021 (On Demand)


How to protect your client’s business from breaches by employees

Costly employee breaches can catch employers off guard without the right measures in place. This webinar will give you a practical understanding of how to protect your client’s business from breaches by employees and, if a breach occurs, what steps can be taken to address this.

Employees are privy to their employer’s confidential data and information including trade secrets, financial affairs, intellectual property, supplier and customer details. With that, comes a lot of trust in an employee. This webinar provides an advanced overview of core preventative (implied and contractual) and responsive measures available to employers during employment and after an employee’s employment ends.

Getting the basics right for your client allows for a sound backboard against breaches in what can be technical areas of employment law including valid restraints of trade, confidentiality and intellectual property clauses and protecting against conflicts of interest arising.

  • Preventive Measures
    • Implied duties on the employee
    • Contractual duties that can be imposed on employees
  • Enforcing breaches and penalties
  • Practical steps employers can take to ensure deterrence of breaches
