(36a) Misappropriation of Trade Secrets by Departing Employees or Other Agents
AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety
Monday, April 2, 2012 - 1:40pm to 2:20pm
This paper discusses a common business tort: misappropriation of trade secrets by departing employees or other agents. A trade secret may be any information that can be used to economic advantage. However, to be entitled to trade secret protection, such information must be maintained as a secret. Valuable proprietary information can be lost when employees or other agents depart to a competitor. Accordingly, protection of such proprietary information must begin at the onset of the employee’s or agent’s employment and continue throughout the employment. Protection and enforcement of trade secrets is discussed for various jurisdictions with an emphasis on recent cases in California, Texas and New York.
