Non-Disclosure Agreements in Georgia | What You Need to Know

Oftentimes, businesses will have non-disclosure agreements in place to protect valuable information/intellectual property that the company owns. This is common sense, as oftentimes, what makes a business both special and successful is its secrets. When you hire an employee, you may have to make that employee privy to those secrets to ensure that he or she can effectively do his or her job. However, if that employee were to leave, you would need a non-disclosure agreement in place to ensure that he or she does not then walk away and use those secrets to start his or her own successful business. Our firm has helped countless employers draft secure, legally-sound non-disclosure agreements for years, and we are ready to do the same for you. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Georgia employment agreements attorney today to learn more. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What specifically is in a non-disclosure agreement?

Essentially, a non-disclosure agreement will lay out all sensitive information that must not be divulged by the employee at any point. Generally speaking, these agreements can include information about a business’s clients, sales or marketing plans, trade secrets, or even information about new products or services the business is developing.

When can I require an employee to sign a non-disclosure agreement?

Under most circumstances, as an employer, you may require your employee to sign a non-disclosure agreement when you share a trade secret with that employee, when you introduce plans for your business/a new product, when you hire a new employee that will be granted access to private information, when you start a business relationship between an attorney and client, and more.

What happens when someone violates a nondisclosure agreement?

If you or your employee violates a non-disclosure agreement, the individual who violated the agreement can most likely be held liable for breach of contract. When you draft the contract initially, you should specifically include all penalties for violating this contract. In certain cases, with the assistance of an experienced Atlanta employment agreements attorney, you may be able to seek damages for the breach, file for copyright infringement, and more. This is not always easy, which is why you must have an attorney on your side who has extensive knowledge of employment law. Our firm has what it takes to help.
