Connecticut Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) Template

Create a high quality document online now!

The Connecticut non-disclosure agreement, like that of any state, is a legal contract signed by at least two (2) parties which binds them to keep trade secrets and other confidential information protected from third parties. This document is often applied when a business is hiring new employees and wishes to keep private and valuable information from its competitors; in this case, the agreement would be defined as Unilateral (meaning the first party owns the information and the second is legally bound to maintaining its confidentiality). When two (2) companies are entering into business together and wish the counterparty to keep their trade secrets classified, they will create a Mutual agreement (neither party can disclose the others’ confidential information).

Definition of “Trade Secret” – Sec. 35-51

Laws – Sec. 35-50

Non-Compete Agreement – A non-compete agreement is often paired with the non-disclosure agreement upon the hiring of an employee, and in many ways, it serves the same purpose. However, the difference lies in how this document restricts employees from using the company’s confidential information and trade secrets to compete with the company once their employment is terminated.
