- Let's assume both parties would love to cooperate in good faith.
- Part of Employee's duties is Software Development
- Employee would like to do not related Software Development in their spare time
The best way, would be to get transparent agreement between parties, securing interests of both sides (like granting nonexclusive license to Company for parts used in Company's products and Clarifying that rights are released to Employee).
How to formulate such kind of agreement to secure interests of both parties in healthy, fair way (for both of them)?
Area: Software Development with all related things (design, formulas, concepts, algorithms and data-structures, patents(?) ...).
Job relationship: Part of Employee's duties is software development (with all related activities), and Employee's is doing software development in spare time (assume healthy relationship: what Employee is doing in spare time is: not competitive, different area (like accounting software and computer games), not related with everyday tasks and Company's core products etc... - feel free to expand or paraphrase)
