When a new employee brings competitor information, are we at risk?

by on
in Human Resources

Q. We just hired a salesperson from a competitor. We warned her not to take proprietary information from her former employer, but she says what is on her personal laptop is her information. Is there any risk for us from that laptop?

A. Yes. If she has improperly taken or retained information from her former employer, it can cause a problem for you, even if you don’t know about it.

Also, if she destroys the information, the fact that it was destroyed can also create a problem. The safest approach is to tell her to put aside the old laptop she used before, and preserve all the data on it. Then she can start with a new laptop for her new job with you.
