EU Trade Secrets directive proposal
Eurocadres has some serious objections to the European Commission’s proposal for a directive on the protection of trade secrets and the Council’s position.

Definitions are unclear and there are clear risks of lock-in effects that will reduce career mobility for professionals and managers. Potentially putting a ban on use of knowledge will not improve the climate for innovation in Europe.

The proposal is unbalanced and do not take employee interests into consideration.
