Post-employment restrictions

A lot of employers place restrictions on what you can say and do after you leave their employ. But will doing so keep you from getting and keeping the best employees?

What if you have someone who’s privy to some really relevant if embarrassing details?  And these details aren’t national security secrets, like the Pentagon Papers or the NSA wiretapping stuff?  Can you prevent him or her from writing a tell-all book later?

I guess not.  Former Secretary of Defense Gates is a case in point.

Hillary Clinton’s memoirs to come out later this year.  Wonder if there’s a chapter on Benghazi?
