Employment Essentials (Part 8): Protecting Confidential Information and Intellectual Capital during and after Employment

06 November 2018


Bird & Bird, 4/F Three Pacific Place, 1 Queen's Road East, Hong Kong

In most circumstances, the departure of an employee will not cause any particular problems for an employer beyond finding a suitable replacement. However, in some cases, a departing employee can cause significant damage to an employer's business by engaging in inappropriate conduct in relation to the employer's confidential information and intellectual capital.

In this session we will be looking at the best ways for an employer to protect its business interests against staff misbehaviour. We will discuss the various matters an employer should consider prior to and after the departure of an employee. We will also provide practical guidance on drafting employment contracts and the proper procedures to be put in place prior to the employee's departure.

We hope you can join us for this event on 6 November.

The remainder of the series, with dates to be confirmed, will cover:

Part 9: Data Privacy during the Employment Relationship

Part 10: "Employment Essential" Series - The Wrap Up


We have applied to the Law Society for CPD accreditation.
