    As the saying goes - your employees can be your biggest asset, but also your biggest liability. Never more true than when it comes to IP.

    This episode covers assignment of employee inventions, how to prevent disputes arising from side projects, confidentiality agreements and the risk of new hires bringing third party confidential IP into your business. Rosie is joined by MacKenna Roberts, GC and DPO at Choice TeleMed, and the pair’s discussion focuses on the practical ways you can sidestep an ugly dispute over IP arising out of an employee’s actions.
