Intellectual Property Policies


If you've hired employees to create anything for you, whether it's pharmaceuticals or running shoes, you'll need an employee intellectual property policy to ensure that anything they create on company time remains under company ownership. You've probably taken measures to prevent theft or infringement from competitors or other outside sources, but have you considered who your employees might share sensitive company information with?

An employee intellectual property policy:
  1. Ensures that all employees understand that everything they design, create or innovate belongs to the company.
  2. Binds current or former employees from selling, disclosing or using as their own idea anything created while on the job.
  3. Helps your company comply with federal intellectual property law.
