2023 has already seen a number of major developments for employers in the areas of noncompetition agreements, terms of settlements and separations with employees, and more. Additionally, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to rule on a case with significant repercussions for religious accommodation requests. On May 24, Parker Poe’s Employment & Benefits Practice Group leader Jonathan Crotty presented a webinar which discussed these developments and how employers should start planning for potential changes on the horizon. Topics included: The Federal Trade Commission’s proposal barring use of noncompetes, the substantial legal hurdles the proposal will face, and state efforts to restrict or eliminate the use of noncompetes. Recent National Labor Relations Board decisions on the use of standard confidentiality and non-disparagement provisions in agreements with departing employees, as well as how employers can adjust to these developments. The Supreme Court’s upcoming decision that may significantly alter the way employers review and respond to employee requests for religious accommodations. Click here to watch the webinar replay.
