    Secrecy agreement also known Confidential agreement is an agreement between the employer and employee with regard to the thing or knowledge which has to be kept confidential about the company. Afters signing the agreement an employee cannot pass over any of the trade secrecy or confidential information which he may know while working in that company. In the appointment letters most of the companies includes such clause so as to safe guard their interest. Information received by an employee has to be kept as secret. Employee cannot relieve any thing about the company to any other third party. In some agreement there may be some clause that even after resigning from the present company you cannot reveal the secret of the company to any other third party.

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is a secret agreement between the employee & Employer.The purpose of getting executed this agreement is to maintain the trade secrecy.

    Go through the points of agreement carefully & if you are agree,sign it,Otherwise get it cleared with some knowledgeble person.If you think you can follow the points of secret agreement,then ther is no problem in signing it.Of course It is a common procedure to be followed by most of the companies.

    This practice is for all the employees. So nothing to worry to sign the agreement paper.If you are disagree with some points,you can get it cleared with the manager HR.

    Thanks.

    Ashok
