Does Employer Have to Furnish Copy of NDA to Employee?

Dear Rich: Is it required by law that employers provide a copy of the signed nondisclosure agreement to the employee after they have signed it? In most states, yes, the employer must furnish a copy of each signed agreement including NDAs. If the employer doesn't provide a copy at the time of execution, then the employer usually must allow the employee to view and copy the agreement upon written request. These laws, sometimes referred to as "access to personnel records" legislation differ from state to state and you can find more about your state's law in this article.
