Making a Non-Disparagement Employment Agreement

  • What is a Non-Disparagement Employment Agreement?

    Your employees should be your biggest cheerleaders, but unfortunately that's not always the case. If there's any doubt, you can use a Non-Disparagement Employment Agreement to ensure your business' good reputation. It sets out the terms of employment while protecting your business from an employee who may speak negatively of your company.


    Use the Non-Disparagement Employment Agreement document if:

    • You're hiring a new employee and wish to define the rights and obligations of both the employee and the employer.
    • You're hiring a new employee and wish to protect your good reputation by requiring the employee to avoid speaking negatively of your company.

    It's easier than ever to post something online that a lot of people end up seeing, and which could turn out to be reputation-damaging. A Non-Disparagement Employment Agreement is a contract between an employee and employer defining the employee's position at the company - but it also includes language barring an employee from defaming, disparaging or criticizing the company. For the employee, this prohibition extends to all persons including the press, board of directors, competitors and investors. A Non-Disparagement Employment Agreement, like a standard Employment Agreement, includes terms on employee compensation, job duties, expense reimbursement and benefits, but it's also designed to protect a company's reputation. Should a relationship with an employee turn sour, the employee has agreed to avoid saying anything disparaging about the business to others.
