What is an Employee NDA?

A Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) with a prospective employee is a legal agreement between an employer (the disclosing party) and a prospective employee (the receiving party) that aims to protect confidential information disclosed during the hiring process.

This agreement is generally one-sided and aimed at protecting the company to ensure that the prospective employee agrees not to disclose or misuse any confidential information they may gain access to during the hiring process.
