Hire & Fire employment podcast – business secrets

What is a business secret? How can an employer protect the company's business secrets and keep them from being exploited by employees and former employees?

Protecting their business secrets is a priority for most companies. If employees and former employees were free to bring with them and use business secrets after they have left their employment, this could lead to considerable problems for the employer.

In this episode of Roschier’s Hire & Fire employment podcast, published in Swedish, Victoria Bergholtz and Elin Osbeck invited Erik Ficks, Roschier Partner and an expert in all intellectual property-related matters, to discuss business secrets. Erik was part of the referral group working with the new law about business secrets that came into effect in Sweden in 2018, and he offers insights into the new legislation and suggestions about protecting business secrets.
