Full Description

The PF&C is hosting our yearly ethics presentation in downtown Houston at the HESS Tower. Many in the oil and gas industry have been affected by the downturn and have found a new job or will find employment in the future. Not only will this presentation satisfy an ethics PDH, it will also be a great opportunity to learn of the many legal obligations employees need to be aware of during transition.

Please join us to learn about ethical considerations applicable to employees who are changing employers, including common employment contract terms, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, confidentiality issues, and common law obligations employees owe employers under Texas law.
