If I create intellectual product while employed, does it become the property of the employer?

Thank you for your question.

Whatever you create while under the proverbial time-clock or payroll would be considered the property of the employer. If, however, you create it during your time off, and it is not related to your work or duties at the company, it would be considered your personal intellectual property.

Good luck.
