DESCRIPTION

Tortious Interference in the Employment Context: A State-by-State Survey examines both business-versus-business suits, and suits brought by former employees against employers. Using a uniform outline, and an easy to use, question-and-answer format, the treatise examines—for each state—the elements of the cause of action, the defenses that may be successfully raised, and the types of relief available.

Each State Chapter Addresses:

  • Interference with the Covenant
  • Interference with Commercial Relationships or Prospective Economic Advantage/Expectancy
  • ​Claims Against the New Employer Where the Employment Was At Will
  • Claims Where the Employment Was for a Definite Term
  • Defenses to Claims
  • Relief Available to Former Employer
  • Similar Claims Recognized by States
  • Practical Advice for an Employer Screening or Considering Hiring Applicants With Restrictive Covenants
  • Indemnification
  • Personal Liability of Individual Officers or Employees for Tortious Interference

Supplement Information

  • Whether at-will employment can form the basis of a tortious interference claim
  • Whether an unenforceable employment agreement can form the basis of a tortious interference claim
  • The availability of attorney’s fees
  • Whether a tortious interference claim may be displaced by the Uniform Trade Secrets Act
  • The viability of a tortious interference claim where the former employer cannot demonstrate the breach of a postemployment restrictive covenant
  • And more!​
