Confidentiality Agreements, or Non-Disclosure Agreements, can be very important. These employment contracts prevent one or more parties from revealing certain information about their company to competitors. Often, these are seen in business where proprietary information is at play, and revealing this information would give away certain “trade secrets.”

By creating a written agreement, many future headaches can be avoided. One key advantage of creating a written confidentiality agreement is that “confidential material” or “confidential information” will be clearly defined. Creating this clear definition avoids ambiguity, which is one main cause of litigation in employment contract law.
