Employee Departure – Managing the Risk

97 97 people viewed this event.

Presented by Dominic Russell, Coleman Greig Lawyers and Stan Gallo, BDO Australia

Intellectual Property (IP) and other Commercially Sensitive Information (CSI) are valuable assets to any organisation. Departing employees may leave amicably without increasing risks to the integrity of your CSI or IP. However, sometimes additional risks present themselves, and further investigation is warranted.

In our experience, employees moving to a competitor as well as disgruntled ex-employees who want to take and use your IP and CSI for their own advantage, or who might want to damage your organisation’s reputation will overtly or covertly find a way to do so.

This interactive session hosted by Coleman Greig and BDO Australia aims to provide you with the information and tools to act appropriately, respond to these risks proportionally, and protect your organisation.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What employers can direct employees to do
  • If employers can search or examine employees’ personal devices, and if so, how the data on these can best be captured, keeping the chain-of-custody intact as best as possible
  • How employers can use the evidence they obtain through workplace surveillance in an internal investigation or in court
  • The processes for taking legal action to enforce obligations of confidence in the event of a breach
  • The main steps an employer should take to prevent and detect issues in the employee departure process
  • Key insights from case study examples.

We hope you can join us for this complimentary session.
