Employers may expect confidentiality

Non-disclosure agreements about allegedly torrid events have been in the news very recently. These agreements, also known as confidentiality and invention assignment agreements, are standard parts of employment contracts. The terms of these agreements are intended to stop employees from sharing confidential information about the business, work product and other business information, even if they leave their employer.

Pennsylvania Attorney General questions no poach agreements

No competition clauses are not limited to employment contracts for lucrative occupations. Lately, fast food workers and franchisees have confronted contracts that limit a worker's ability to seek better employment. The Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General and attorney generals from other states have sent letters to franchises seeking information and documents concerning these no-poach agreements.

Supreme Court rules on employment contracts

Employers have used employment contracts to limit employee rights. In a close 5-4 decision last month, the U.S. Supreme Court approved one of these restrictions by ruling that class action waivers in these contacts are valid and enforceable. In other words, employees may waive their right to participate in class action lawsuits against their employers and must take their work-related disputes to arbitration as individuals.
