ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- BNA Books, a division of specialized news and information publisher BNA, announces the publication of the Restrictive Covenants and Trade Secrets in Employment Law: An International Survey, Volumes I and II. These volumes are published by BNA Books, a division of BNA, in cooperation with the International Labor and Employment Law Committee of the American Bar Association's (ABA) Section of Labor and Employment Law.
This two-volume set of treatises provides detailed comprehensive assistance for the drafting, negotiating, and litigating process, with information provided by attorneys in key countries around the world. Restrictive Covenants and Trade Secrets in Employment Law: An International Survey, Volumes I and II explore the differences between the U.S. and European countries in regulating noncompetition and nonsolicitation provisions and in imposing restrictions related to confidential information and trade secrets, as well as use of garden leave and restrictions on equity compensation in this area. Volume I covers countries in Europe, while Volume II covers countries in the Americas, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Oceania.
The authors offer key insights on strategies and tactics that are essential to dealing effectively with these issues, and identify and analyze the privacy concerns that arise when employers try to restrict their employees' disclosures, conduct investigations concerning possible violations, or monitor compliance. They also discuss the typical procedural questions that arise, such as use of temporary restraining orders and injunctions. Each country-specific chapter is written by highly regarded local lawyers, and examines:
- Applicable country law, international conventions, and treaties
- Practical issues in drafting restrictive covenants
- Practical issues, strategy and tactics in trade secret protection and enforcement
- Forum options
