Confidentiality agreements are a type of contract, often entered into between employees and employers, that helps to protect against potentially damaging disclosures of non-public information.

What is an NDA (Non-disclosure Agreement)?

Confidentiality agreements can also be called non-disclosure agreements and they address restrictions on dissemination of types of information. Confidentiality agreements often address the following:

  • Trade Secrets
  • Business/Marketing Plans
  • Technology
  • Patents/Intellectual Property
  • Financial Disclosures
  • Client Lists

If you’re involved in business, you may have experience dealing with confidentiality agreements. They serve an essential purpose of protecting a company’s interests from employees who may intentionally or unintentionally disclose protected information.

If you feel like a party may have breached a non-disclosure agreement any way, then you may want to take legal action. With the state of technology, one disgruntled employee can cause incalculable damages to her employer or former employer. Large amounts of sensitive information can be taken from a workplace, copied, and posted online for consumption by competitors, clients, and anyone else in the general public.
