The attorneys at Roberts Tate, LLC have significant experience in employment related matters. This includes advising our clients on compliance with state and federal employment laws, performing workplace educational seminars and litigating employment discrimination suits when they arise.
Our employment expertise also extends to the negotiation and litigation of restrictive covenants, such as non-solicitation and non-compete agreements. Our experience includes drafting employment agreements which may include restrictive covenants, reviewing and analyzing restrictive covenants in current employment agreements, advising clients about the enforceability of restrictive covenants, negotiating the release from a restrictive covenant, and when necessary, filing suit to determine the validity of a restrictive covenant. We have successfully defended numerous discrimination cases on behalf of employees. The attorneys at Roberts Tate have extensive experience litigating trade secrets cases. We have pursued employees on behalf of their former employers for the theft of trade secrets on the basis of contractual confidentiality restrictions as well as under applicable Georgia law, including the Georgia Trade Secret Practices Act and the Georgia Computer Systems Protection Act. These types of cases often involve highly technical issues concerning what is a trade secret, or can otherwise be deemed confidential or proprietary information of a company.
