Employee Confidentiality Policy

In addition to implementing written confidentiality/nondisclosure agreements, a confidentiality policy can remind employees of their ongoing responsibility to protect the company’s trade secrets, customer data and other confidential information.

Policy Drafting Tips:

  • Identify the types/categories of confidential information;
  • Instruct employees what to do if uncertain whether a document or other material contains confidential information;
  • Prohibit unauthorized divulgence or removal of confidential or proprietary information;
  • Permit disclosure of unlawful acts in the workplace; and
  • Ensure the policy does not deter or prohibit discussions about employment terms and conditions.


Implement, regularly review and update as needed a comprehensive, clearly written handbook.

We trust this series will inform employers on the importance of having a well-written handbook to assist new hires, existing employees, and management alike. To purchase our template handbook and accompanying forms or for more information, please contact Office Manager Aimee Rosales at 626.583.6600 or email her at officemgr@tbowleslaw.com.

NOTE: Use of this website does not make one a client of the Law Offices of Timothy Bowles (“Firm” or “Bowles Law”). Establishing an attorney-client relationship and the confidentiality that comes with it depends on the Firm’s prior confirmation that no factor, including any conflict of interest (for example, our representation of another party adverse to you), exists to prevent that establishment. If you have confidential information that you would like to provide a Bowles Law attorney, please communicate directly to one of our attorneys, in person, by telephone, email, fax or other written means. Do not use this website to offer or communicate confidential information about any legal matter.
