Trade Secrets Act

The Trade Secrets Act has not been around for very long. This law came into force in 2018. Within this law, it is regulated that entrepreneurs are protected against the unlawful acquisition, use and disclosure of business information.

For you as a business owner, it is important to properly regulate contractually how your employees should handle trade secrets during and at the end of their employment. For instance, by drawing up a secrecy clause or an NDA, including a penalty clause. It is advisable to assess existing contracts in more detail and adjust them where necessary.

Among other things, we pay specific attention to regulations on trade secrets and non-competition clauses in the employee's employment contract. This way, you know that your trade secrets are in safe hands, even when an employee is no longer employed by you.
