Protecting company information via contractual terms

Overview

It is wise for employers to make provision within contractual terms to protect their interests, such as ensuring employees do not leak confidential information to competitors. Employers may also wish to protect the ownership of inventions, and limit an ex-employee's ability to work in competition with them.

Well drafted clauses can ensure that an employer has the correct mechanism for preventing its vital operations from being compromised.
