For decades California employers have relied on a 1985 decision to enforce contractual provisions prohibiting solicitation of employees after termination; but a lot happened to change this in November 2018 with the California Court of Appeals decision in the AMN case.  Since 2018, there have been additional developments all companies should understand.

Our partners will discuss these issues and what they mean for companies doing business in California that utilize or are contemplating using employee non-solicitation clauses.
