Course Information

Course Description

The saying goes that there are six degrees of separation but, in fashion, there may only be three; and, in NY and CA, there is likely only one.  While competition for the consumer is fierce, competition for talent is, dare we say, pugnacious!  Finding the right mix of talent, vision and loyalty is difficult enough without having to worry about non-competition clauses, golden handcuffs and other restrictive covenants. Moreover, keeping the top talent connected to your brand and in-house needs the right mixture of money and creativity. 


In this course, viewers learn how to advantageously use non-competes and restrictive covenants as well as to identify best practices when an employee or executive leaves one company for another. In addition, viewers see how fashion brands are reinforcing non-solicitation and other provisions after termination of the employment relationship.  Lastly, attendees explore how to develop and administer an incentive plan that works for their organization. 


Join Rania V. Sedhom, Founding Member, Sedhom & Mayhew, PLLC, a Bespoke Law FirmTM and Marjorie M. Glover, chair of Chadbourne & Parke LLP's executive compensation and employee benefits practice group and a member of the Firm’s employment law department, as they discuss the practical effects and solutions of certain employee benefits and executive compensation practices.


Learning Objectives:

I.     Define executive compensation and employee benefits

II.    Understand Non-Solicitation

III.   Grasp Restrictive Covenants

IV.   Explore and comprehend Incentive Plans
