Question:

I realize inducing an employee to leave a secure position can leave me liable for paying greater notice, but at what point is it considered to be inducement? For example, I post an ad in the paper and prospective employees apply for the position. I interview many candidates and tell them what our company is offering. When I offer the job to the potential new hire is this inducement?
