When workers come and go, they take away -- and bring -- to their next job a lot of information. Sometimes this is legal, sometimes it isn't; and the problems created by the flow of information can be especially difficult in the case of contingent workers. This session will explain copyright, trade secret and intellectual property (IP) law so that you will leave with an understanding of what they can own, and what steps they can take to make sure they actually own it. We will discuss liability companies face if incoming employees, consultants or contractors bring information with them, as well as their legal options if workers take information away to their next jobs. This session will provide practical to-do steps that beginners and experts will be able to take to prevent legal liability and protect their company's assets.
