Steps Employers Can Take Before a Reduction in Force to Help Protect Trade Secrets
Layoffs may create an increased risk of trade secret misappropriation. Employers can take certain steps in advance of a reduction in force to help mitigate against this risk. Layoffs are here and with them comes an often-overlooked threat: trade secret misappropriation.
