What will I learn?

Companies grow their global presences, and an increasing number of employees not only work cross-jurisdiction but also remotely from their homes. Questions of ownership and remuneration of employees’ inventions become more complex – and we see significant differences across the globe. While in Switzerland employee inventors rarely are entitled to compensation in addition to agreed salaries, in Germany an additional remuneration is the standard. The amount of which is still often disputed; we regularly read about employees awarded significant payments by courts, as their invention turns out to be particularly successful. In addition, survey show that invention reward policies enhance innovation.

While focusing in particular on Switzerland, Germany, Italy, China, Hong Kong and the US, we will guide you through the global “jungle” of remuneration schemes and invention reward options, provide insights into how employee inventor compensation is calculated and outline the pitfalls you should be aware of.
