Restrictive Covenants

A 90-Minute Lunch & Learn Audio Conference


Elizabeth E. Hogue, Esq.

Thursday, May 23, 2024

****1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time****

Replay: May 30, 2024 (Recorded playback available for 24 hours)

Audio-Conference Description
Restrictive covenants take many forms; including non-competes, non-solicitation, and non-disparagement agreements.  Home health agencies, hospices, private duty agencies, and HME companies have all used restrictive covenants.  Marketing and key staff members have often entered into non-compete agreements with their employers. Non-competes, however, are currently under tremendous fire.  What can employers do?  How should non-compete clauses be structured so that they are likely to pass muster with regulators?  What about geographic limits?  What about the length of time that non-competes are in effect?  Employers may also be concerned about solicitation of both patients and other employees.  How can they protect themselves from potentially serious losses?  What about the use of non-disparagement agreements to help ensure that former employees don’t “bad-mouth” employers to patients, employees, and others in the community?  There will be plenty of time for questions during this teleconference and extensive handouts will be provided.
