If the employer decides to enforce its right to an employee invention, the employee has correspondingly a right to reasonable compensation for his/her invention. The employer and employee should agree on the amount of reasonable compensation especially considering the value of the invention, the scope of the rights transferred to the employer, the employment contract of the employee as well as the conditions of the employment for making the invention.
The employer and employee may agree widely on the procedure concerning employment inventions. Practices can be agreed on in advance for example in the employment contract. An employee invention code can also be a potential option to guide the evaluation of employee inventions on a company or organizational basis. We help you to create an employee invention code complying with the law on employee inventions as well as a rewarding system encouraging innovation activity.
