A Missouri non-disclosure agreement is a document that is used to protect Confidential Information from a third party. Often these agreements are used to protect employers; a non-disclosure agreement is given to an employee when hired to ensure that any Trade Secrets the employee gained access to are not leaked to competing companies. An employer-to-employee agreement would be classified as Unilateral as the employer is the owner of the information. In a situation where two companies are merging, or two or more individuals are entering into a partnership, a Mutual non-disclosure agreement would be employed as it will protect both parties from damage incurred from the misappropriation of Trade Secrets/Confidential Information.
