Act on Employees’ Inventions

Act on Employees’ Inventions

An employer has the right to lay claim to the inventions of an employee. As according to the principles of patent law the inventor has the right to the patent, the Act on Employees’ Inventions regulates the balance between the rights of the employee and those of the employer. Our activities in this field comprise in particular:

  • Consultation regarding an employee’s duty to report the invention to his or her employer
  • Contractual compensation agreements
  • Calculation of the inventor’s bonus
