Making an Employee Invention Agreement
If you run a business in which intellectual property is crucial to your success, an Employee Invention Agreement can be used to protect your valuable assets. Whether your employees are creatives, engineers, chemists, inventors, or any number of specialized roles, an Employee Invention Agreement helps make sure that you, the employer, own the inventions they create at your workplace. It also protects the company's confidential information.
Use the Employee Invention Agreement document if:
An Employee Invention Agreement can be signed before an employee begins work at your company. By signing this document, an employee agrees not to share confidential information, and that any inventions produced during his or her time at the company will be owned by the company. An Employee Invention Agreement does not apply to intellectual property your employee created before joining your company.
