This update examines employer liability for discrimination of all types, including:  Disability discrimination and violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)  Wage and hour laws  Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)  Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)  Expensive lessons learned for simple Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) violations We'll also cover noncompete covenants and pitfalls for employers approached by employees of competitors. You'll learn how nondisclosure and nonsolicitation agreements can provide many of the protections - without some of the downsides - of noncompetes. We'll explore cases that show common ways employers violate employment laws. This webcast includes a 50-state survey of noncompete agreements, which addresses the various states' positions on enforceability, restrictions and scope, standards, consideration and judicial revisions of noncompetes.
