Aia Non Disclosure Agreement
The company should also amend its standard consulting agreement to include the confidentiality agreement, thereby imposing the NDA`s terms and conditions on engineers and other professionals who were commissioned with the project. The advisory services contract should also include a compensation language that protects the company in this regard. Thank you all for your comments and links to similar articles. I`ve been clarifying the situation in our office lately. It turns out that an ex-employee brought not only complete electronic drawing files, but also prices, customer information and a pricing structure to another company where he can steal a project under the feet of our company. This ex-employee has not been in the business for about six months, and I am not sure it took that long to get a confidentiality agreement to the extent that I have it on my desk, but that could have been a good reason to make such an agreement. I`m quite surprised at the level where people will interpret roles in a project by deliberately using copyrighted photography as their own, and in the case of a file comment that uses a company`s documentation when it is not part of that business. Anyway, I think what I can get out of this post is that if you`re honest with yourself, to customers/companies/potential jobs, and with ex-employers didn`t hurt. The business manager has entered into a confidentiality agreement for all employees until the end of the weeks, and after reading the eight-page document, I have questions on which I would like to get information. On the substance of the document, I have no objection to it, as these are purely ethical standards for the silence of customer information, projects and financial information that may otherwise be used against the company by competing organisations.
The real dilemma seems to be how the company wants to limit workers after employment. Essentially, we are asked to agree that we will not represent information, documentation or media from one or more of the work we have worked on in one way or another. An instance would use a (non-professional) project photo in a portfolio to illustrate previous work. I only worked in two companies, and the first company I worked for had no problem with employees using certain materials in a portfolio after employment. Is this type of confidentiality agreement common? What does it mean to represent work in a portfolio if I or someone leave that company? NDAs and confidentiality agreements will allow parties to keep disclosure confidential, but an inventor still runs the risk of a third party filing separately with the inventor. Many ANN and confidentiality agreements present an exception for parties who may have developed the technology separately.
