The California Confidentiality Agreement is a written legal contract between the owner or authorized representative of certain property and a prospective employee or independent contractor. The confidentiality agreement spells out the terms and conditions that prohibit disclosing confidential and proprietary information belonging to the company.
A confidentiality agreement is in effect for the duration of employment or contract and normally for a period of time afterward. The usual term of an California Confidentiality Agreement is between one and three years after termination of employment and includes activities that the former employee or independent contractor is restricted from doing.
IMPORTANT NOTE: There is no legal requirement to have this agreement witnessed or notarized. To cover all bases, we highly recommend having the agreement witnessed by an objective third person. If the property being protected is of extremely high value, you might want to consider having the agreement notarized.
