LinkedIn Activity May Violate Non-Solicitation Agreements

Q: A former employee has invited some of her former co-workers and clients to connect on LinkedIn. Is this a violation of her non-solicitation agreement with our company?

A: It depends. In general, a generic invitation to connect will not be viewed as a violation of a non-solicitation agreement. However, if an invitation is accompanied by a personalized message or other targeted communication, it likely will be viewed as a violation.
