Employee Confidentiality Agreement
This Employee Confidentiality Agreement protects company’s confidential information, including its customer lists and proprietary know-how. The Agreement is designed for renewable energy businesses located in California and other states that don’t allow non-compete agreements. It protects a company’s confidential information and trade secrets, even post-employment. Key elements in the Agreement include an expansive definition of confidential information that protects customer lists, provisions ensuring the assignment and disclosure of inventions, covenants not to solicit the company’s employees or customers post-employment, non-competition covenants during employment, non-disparagement obligations and the protection of the company’s intellectual property.
