  • Idaho recognizes written employment contracts which set out the duties of the employee and employer, and the terms and conditions of employment. See Employment Contracts.
  • In Idaho, restrictive covenants must be designed to protect legitimate business interests and to extend no further than is reasonably necessary to protect those interests. See Restrictive Covenants.
  • Idaho has adopted the Uniform Trade Secrets Act and enforces protection of proprietary information. See Trade Secrets.
