Please join FordHarrison Partner Wesley Redmond, wredmond@fordharrison.com, for a complimentary webinar on Alabama's New Non-compete and Non-solicitation Act.

Effective January 1, 2016, Alabama passed a new statute regulating non-compete and non-solicitation agreements in Alabama (the "New Act"). The New Act was announced as being a codification of the common law principles the Alabama courts had previously established. Unfortunately, the new Act has several provisions that limit an employer's ability to enter into restrictive covenants with employees and introduces new concepts that are not defined within the New Act. The New Act clarifies some areas such as identifying what interests an employer is able to protect with a restrictive covenant and what time limits are presumed to be enforceable, but the New Act sets presumptive time limits that are less than the amounts the Alabama courts have previously allowed and certainly less than employers desire. This webinar will alert you to the unsettled areas in the New Act and focus on some best practices to address those areas and how to combat the short presumptive time limits. In addition, the webinar will address the most often asked question both before and after the New Act: Are these types of agreements ever enforceable in Alabama?
