Corky Harper and the employment lawyers at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough invite you to a Free 90-minute Webinar
The Defend Trade Secrets Act: New Rights and Obligations for U.S. Employers
Tuesday, June 21 2016
3:00 - 4:30 p.m. EDT
Protecting trade secrets and other intellectual property is a key issue for employers. Unlike patents, however, no federal law existed to provide a civil remedy for trade secret theft. That changed on May 11, 2016, when President Obama signed into law the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (DTSA). DTSA provides a federal cause of action for trade secret theft. Now, employers may sue former employees or others who misappropriate their trade secrets in federal court or in state court under existing state laws. Experienced lawyers from across the U.S. will offer guidance and insights into the following:
- Overview of the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act
- How the DTSA will impact employers
- Steps employers should consider taking in light of the DTSA
- What the DTSA means for multi-state employers in prosecuting, or defending against, claims of trade secret misappropriation
- Best practices and key take-aways
