The Experience of Negotiating

Program Number
Program Date
CLE Credits

Negotiating is a skill taught by experience. It cannot be learned from a book or in a classroom or in a lecture hall. The award-winning song written by Don Schlitz, "The Gambler", captures the essence: 

"You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em ..." 

So our program will first examine some fundamentals of negotiating which that song comprehends, and then on negotiating specific contracts and contract terms, exploring their many aspects.

The Federal Trade Commission has issued a rule banning non-compete clauses in employment contracts.  The rule is being challenged in the courts, including a law suit by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  Further, please check the laws on non-compete provisions in those jurisdictions applicable to the employment agreement.
