This Non Disclosure Agreement is designed for use by employers to prevent employees from disclosing information and material of a sensitive, proprietary or commercial nature.

In the course of their employment, employees gain intimate access to a wide range of highly sensitive and commercially valuable information, disclosure of which, even accidental could imperil the competitive advantage of the employer.

Therefore it is very important that employers make clear to employees the types of information that they must keep confidential, and what 'keeping confidential' means in practice.

This document allows the Employer to define precisely what sort of information cannot be disclosed without authorisation. There are several categories of information that typically feature in Non Disclosure Agreements, including:

  • customer information
  • information about business operations
  • accounting information
  • information about intellectual property
  • future marketing strategies

The user in filling in this document can select which categories of information that intend to subject to a duty of confidence, and an obligation of non-disclosure. Users can furthermore add additional categories or elaborate in greater detail specific examples of the information that they must not be divulged without authorisation.

This Non Disclosure Agreement comes complete with several standard employee obligations of non disclosure. This should be sufficient for most employers. However, it also allows the employers to add to and elaborate on the standard obligations of non disclosure, to spell out exactly what is required of their employees so they maintain the confidentiality of information.

In any employment relation, clear communication of expectations is key.

Through this document, employers can make clear to employees what should be done in the event of an unauthorised disclosure of confidential information, and the potential repercussions of a breach of the agreement.

How to Use this Document

This document can be used in respect of existing employees, new hires or job candidates who are exposed to confidential information in the recruitment and screening process.

The user should fill in all details as accurately as possible. The user should try to identify as precisely as possible the type of information they want to be covered by the duty of non disclosure and provide examples relevant to their specific business environment. This document should be filled in, dated and signed by both parties. A hard and soft copy should be retained by both for their records.

This document is designed for employers and employees. If users want to protect confidential information from unauthorised disclosure by potential investors, business partners or contractors, they should refer to the 'Non Disclosure Agreement between Business Partners'.

Applicable Law

This document is written in compliance with Irish Contract Law.
