Education included a bachelors degree from Idaho State University in 1966 and a law degree (Juris Doctor) from the University of Idaho in 1982. In between, John taught school for 3 years then went to work for Idaho Health and Welfare for 10 years as a social worker. As a social worker, John worked in child protection, foster care placement and supervision, adult protection and services to families in need and/or dysfunction.

Protect Your Trade Secrets Before It is Too Late
Protect your trade secrets by making sure that they are well defined and kept secret. You must also have effective policies in place so that employees know what is trade secret and what is not. Failure to timely and adequately take these steps could lead to loss of trade secret protection.
