According to the employment contract, anything an employee comes up with, at any time (e.g. during weekends and completely unrelated to work) is the property of the company. It seems harsh but as prospective employees we were told it is "take it or leave it".
Suppose an employee was now put on unpaid leave due to the pandemic. They then come up with an invention that they wish to patent.
What is the legal position if the employee was put on unpaid leave? Who owns the patent?
What about if the employee used the workplaces' facilities such as workshops or labs to build a prototype? Perhaps even paying out of their own pocket for the engineering staff to help him/her build a demonstrator?
This company is based in Israel.
