The new Directive for the Protection of Trade Secrets entered into force on April 26, 2019. What do employers have to do now to ensure that sensitive company data will continue to be qualified as trade secrets in the future? In a brief explanatory video, the experts from Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek’s Employment Law Practice Group explain the actions employers should take.
According to the new law, it is important for employers to first determine their business and trade secrets, assign them to specific employee groups, create electronic access restrictions for them and establish company-wide confidentiality guidelines. Using an illustrative practical example, the lawyers of the Employment Law Practice Group explain how employers will be able to ensure sufficient protection of their trade secrets.
The Employment Law Practice Group consists of more than 40 team members specializing in employment law and certified specialists in employment law who advise national and international companies in all areas of employment law. Last year, the Practice Group had already produced a videoclip on the use of external staff.
