Put to the Test: Understanding and Reducing the Risks of Pre-Employment Testing

Pre-employment tests, including physical ability tests, can be valuable tools for determining a candidate’s ability to perform essential job functions. However, such tests face increasing scrutiny from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for their possible violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act and for potentially having a disparate impact on protected classes. This webinar will focus on the parameters of employment tests and the legal issues that come with them. It will also address the importance of carefully validating such tests prior to implementation and reexamining existing pre-employment tests to ensure they do not increase the risk of legal scrutiny.

OD Works! Hey! Give Back My Clients and Trade Secrets . . . And That Stapler!

Protecting your trade secrets and valuable client relationships is critical, but it has become increasingly challenging to craft enforceable noncompete and trade secret agreements—and the more states you do business in, the bigger the challenge is. Not only do courts’ interpretations of what is “reasonable” vary from state to state, but new legislation limiting the scope of noncompetes has been introduced in several states, and more is expected. This session will address key issues to consider when drafting your restrictive covenants, such as the duration of the agreement, what constitutes “irreparable harm,” what types of activities can be restricted, and how the reason for the separation can affect the enforceability of the agreement.
