Confidentiality agreements often include the length of time a worker who leaves his or her job is not allowed to work for a competing company. The objective is that the former employee will not be able to benefit a new employer from the information or generate profits obtained from a competitor, the former employer. A Confidential Disclosure Agreement [CDA), also known as the Confidentiality Agreement (NDA), is a legal agreement between at least two parties, which describes information that the parties wish to share for evaluation purposes, but which wish to restrict wider use and dissemination. The parties undertake not to disclose the non-public information covered by the agreement. CDAs are often performed when two parties are considering a relationship/cooperation and must understand the processes, methods or technologies of the other party only for the purpose of assessing the potential of a future relationship. Finally, it is much easier to implement a confidentiality agreement when you hire an employee for the first time. Because before accepting the workplace, the employee knows that it is a prerequisite for employment. In this case, the confidentiality agreement is covered by the terms of employment when the potential employee accepts your job offer. G. The termination of the talks or relations between the parties does not exempt the contracting party, its staff, its representatives, or related undertakings from obligations of non-use or non-disclosure under this agreement or the obligation to return or destroy certain materials.

The company discovered that these employees were legally purchasing mobile phones through the distribution organization and then reselling them at home with a significant price increase. When asked to sign the new agreement prohibiting this type of competitive behaviour, they decided that they were making more money in their resale operations.
