Stop Theft of Employer Property by Employees

Key Points

  • With many employees being informed of company secrets in order to perform their jobs, as well as creating new products as part of their job description, it could be easy for employers to lose the rights to their own trade secrets and intellectual property.
  • To counteract this, employers should take care to have detailed policies on what qualifies as intellectual property and what belongs to the business.
  • Employers should also be very careful of who has access to company property and what can leave the employer's premises.
