Newsletter 2/19: Competition from employees ceasing to work for an employer – prevention and safeguarding interests
When an employee ceases to work for an employer, loyalty to his employer is put to the test.

This newsletter shows how companies can prevent this and how they can defend themselves against prohibited conduct by employees who no longer work for them.
