DESCRIPTION

EASY ACCESS to explanations of causes of action, procedural issues, leading cases, and emerging trends for all 50 states and the District of Columbia

Reflecting the rapid expansion of litigation concerning the application of the employee duty of loyalty, this treatise is a meticulously researched reference detailing, by state, the recognition and understanding of this body of law, including prohibited and permitted conduct; litigation issues; and the availability of injunctive relief, damages, and defenses.

Unique among titles on the subject, the Fifth Edition provides up-to-date analysis, by state, of conduct that breaches and conduct that does not breach the employee duty of loyalty. Extensive discussions of state law, broken out by category of employee—from “mere employees” to “officers and directors”—show the reader how the duty of loyalty is applied depending on the level of responsibility an employee has within an organization.

This two-volume treatise also explores:

  • Whether a cause of action for breach of the employee duty of loyalty has been recognized
  • What damages are available for breach of the employee duty of loyalty
  • Commentators’ reactions to the formulation of the employee duty of loyalty in the Restatement of Employment Law
  • Whether a claim for breach of the employee duty of loyalty is preempted by the Uniform Trade Secrets Act

Employee Duty of Loyalty: A State-by-State Survey, Fifth Edition includes Finding Lists and detailed chapter contents, appendices containing relevant Restatement excerpts, extensive quotations from the case law, and cross-references to other titles in the State-by-State Survey Series. This question-and-answer reference is the premier resource available on how each state addresses the employee duty of loyalty.
