Confidentiality Policy Agreement Template
Where an employee is given access to confidential information or material, a written agreement must be in place stating that the employee agrees to not disclose the information during the period of employment or after the employment has been terminated.
Information regarded as confidential can include customer data, customer private information, any processes developed while in the employment – even if the employee is the person to have created them and of course all proprietary formulations and/or processes that the employee may have had access to during their time with the employer.
This agreement needs to be signed by both parties and retained on file. You may also wish to update it from time to time for specific new entries should new areas of access arise.
