Houston Employee Poaching Attorneys
Is Poaching Employees Legal? Know Your Rights
Competition among rival businesses is nothing new, but there are some tactics that simply aren’t legal practices. Competitors may vie for the same superstar salesperson, or they might bid for similar investors, clients, or partners, but some competitive tactics aren’t supportable, and they can result in repercussions. Employee poaching, or employee raiding, is one such tactic.
If a competing company wishes to strengthen its team, it might attempt to do so by stealing away employees from other companies. Or, if an employee moves to a competing company, they may attempt to move their team over with them, creating a mass exodus that can be detrimental to the company losing employees. This process, employee poaching, isn’t outright illegal, but it is frowned upon and, more importantly, it can violate certain business laws.
