Understanding Misappropriation of Trade Secrets
November 28, 2016
Employers and business owners know too well the problems that can arise when an employee leaves to take a job with a competitor.
They most often arise when an employee has strong relationships with customers with special needs and requirements, or if the employee has knowledge of sensitive business information such as the source code structure for a company’s most successful product or pricing structure.
But many employers do not know what rights they have if their former employee discloses or uses the former employer’s information in their new employment.
