Wietrzychowski Quoted in the Philadelphia Business JournalOn September 5, 2008 by Schnader in Labor and Employment
Michael Wietrzychowski, Vice Chair of the Firm’s Labor and Employment Practices Group, was quoted in the article “Latest noncompete trends include high-tech sleuthing,” which was published in the September 5 – 12, 2008 edition of the Philadelphia Business Journal. The article examined trends in noncompete clauses, including the increasing use of computer forensics in settling disputes related to these types of clauses. Mr. Wietrzychowski noted that while noncompete clauses are enforceable, courts will seek to balance both the employer’s and the employee’s interests. “The law is so fuzzy and nebulous that judges will basically rule out of a sense of fairness. Courts want to see something that is fair to the departing employee so they can continue to put food on the table, and fair to the employer so they can protect their interests.” Mr. Wietrzychowski has extensive national experience with all types of labor and employment matters — representing corporations and select professionals and executives before various federal, state, local, and administrative tribunals.
