Hire & Fire employment podcast – freedom of movement on the labor market

Do you “own” your employees? To what extent can employers restrict their employees’ freedom of movement on the labor market? Is it possible for an employee to constitute a business secret?

In this episode of Roschier’s Hire & Fire employment podcast, published in Swedish, Victoria Bergholz and Elin Osbeck discuss the latest rulings by the Swedish Employment Court (Arbetsdomstolen) concerning clauses prohibiting the recruitment of employees and the conclusions that can be drawn from these verdicts.

Jenny Welander Wadström answers the question whether or not it is smart to restrict employees from certain actions for ten years and discusses how employers can safeguard their trade secrets.
