When may come responsibility for the disclosure of trade secrets.

Hold accountable employees for disclosing trade secrets will not work if the conditions of the employment contract are prohibited from disclosing it, but its concept is not disclosed. This position is confirmed by judicial practice, for example, appeal the determination of the Moscow City Court on 09.18.2013 of the case № 11-28840.
Thus, judicial practice comes from the fact that the trade secret is considered established if the employer:
1. forbidden to disclose it in the employment contract;
2. adopted the act on the management of trade secrets and acquainted with the act of the employee against signature;
3. fixed the list of confidential information.
