The Alabama non-disclosure agreement (NDA) allows companies to protect their business interests from employees or subcontractors that may have access to their proprietary information. This agreement makes it so if any of the shared information about the company is made public or given to competitors that there will be damages sought in accordance with the NDA.
A non-disclosure is not a non-compete which does not allow an individual to work in the same profession if the company no longer wants the person’s services. Furthermore, non-compete agreements were outlawed January 1, 2016 when the Restrictive Covenants Act was passed (repealing § 8-1-1).
