What is the purpose of a non-disclosure agreement?

A non-disclosure agreement, also known as an NSA, is a document that is used to protect sensitive information concerning a company and its clients. As an employee, if your job will require you to be exposed to confidential information, oftentimes, your employer will ask you to sign an agreement to protect certain information like:

  • Trade secrets
  • Sales or marketing plans
  • Client information
  • Information about new products or services

Am I required to sign an NDA?

In most cases, it is completely legal to require your employees to sign non-disclosure agreements. If your employer will be sharing trade secrets with you, giving you access to private information, including clients’ information, the company’s information, introducing plans for their business to you, and more, there is a high likelihood that an agreement is perfectly fair and even essential in order to protect their business.

If you have questions regarding an NDA, do not hesitate to reach out to an experienced employment law attorney at the Vigilante Law Firm, P.C. to discuss the specifics of your case.

When are NDA’s needed?

Usually, a non-disclosure agreement will be used when:

  • Sharing a trade secret
  • Starting a business relationship between an attorney and a client or a doctor and a patient
  • Business plans or plans for a new product
  • Upon providing information to a reporter who is writing about the business
  • Upon hiring a new employee that will have access to confidential information

What are the consequences if I violate an NDA?

You will most likely face severe legal penalties if you violate a non-disclosure agreement. To circumvent this, it is essential that you retain the services of a knowledgeable attorney who can help you fully understand the agreement you are signing and what it entails. If you do violate an NDA, it is critical that you reach out to an attorney as soon as possible. Our legal team will be able to provide the best guidance towards a solution.
