This provision states that even if you don’t promptly complain about a violation of the NDA, you still have the right to complain about it later. Without this kind of clause, if you know the other party has breached the agreement but you let it pass, you give up (waive) your right to sue for it. If you run a business, and have an existing employment agreement with an employee, and need to alter it, you can use an Employee Agreement Amendment. Sometimes changes are necessary if the work responsibilities have shifted, or if you'd like to reward an employee with more vacation days. An Employment Agreement Amendment is useful when you want to change only one or two terms in an existing contract. In general, the scope of such an agreement, whether the geographic area covered or the length of time that it lasts, must be no broader than necessary to protect the employer's business. In addition, while a covenant not to compete may typically be imposed on a new employee as a condition of employment, if it is imposed on an existing employee it must be supported by some independent consideration beyond a simple promise of continued employment, such as a raise, a bonus payment, or improved commission terms. For example, an employee’s know-how may be necessary to train other employees in how to make or use an invention. Although know-how is a combination of secret and nonsecret information, we suggest that you treat it as a protectable trade secret. All documents are available in English, French, Spanish, Chinese, German, Italian and Portuguese. Doing business with foreign partners and clients has never been easier!
