EMPLOYEE CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT
In consideration for my employment by kidz2leaders®, inc. (“Organization”), and the salary and other remuneration and benefits I receive or will receive, I agree to the following:
I will maintain the confidentiality of any Confidential Information disclosed to me by the Organization. Confidential Information is information about children or families served by the Organization, or information about the Organization and its operations, finances or business that is not generally known to others. Confidential Information also includes information disclosed to the Organization by third parties that the Organization is obligated to keep confidential. Confidential Information subject to this Agreement may include information that is a trade secret. Information that is not a trade secret, as defined by Georgia law, will constitute Confidential Information only for a period of three (3) years after the last day that of my employment with the Organization.
I also agree that any work I perform on and contributions to documents, programs, and other expressions in any tangible medium (collectively, “Works”) are within the scope of my duties, responsibilities, or assignment. My work on and contributions to the Works will be rendered and made by me for, at the instigation of, and under the overall direction of, the Organization, and all such works and contributions, together with the Works, are and at all times shall be regarded as “work made for hire,” as that term is used in United States Copyright Laws. Without limiting this acknowledgement, I assign, grant, and deliver exclusively to the Organization all rights, titles, and interests in and to any such Works, and all copies and versions, including all copyrights and renewals. I will execute and deliver to the Organization or its successors and assigns, any assignments and documents the Organization requests for the purpose of complete, exclusive, perpetual, and worldwide ownership of all rights, titles, and interests of every kind and nature, including all copyrights in and to the Works, and I constitute and appoint the Organization as my agent to execute and deliver any assignments or documents I fail or refuse to execute and delivery, this power and agency being coupled with an interest and being irrevocable.
I understand and agree that any breach of this Agreement may cause the Organization great and irreparable harm and that it would be difficult or impossible to establish the full monetary value of such damage. Consequently, in the event of any breach of this Agreement, I agree that any breach will be grounds for immediate dismissal from my employment; I consent to the entry of appropriate preliminary and permanent injunctions in a court of appropriate jurisdiction, without posting of a bond or other security, in addition to whatever remedies the Organization may have; and I agree to indemnify and hold the Organization harmless from any loss, cost, damage or expense (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by the Organization because of my breach of any portion of this Agreement.
I understand and agree that nothing in this Agreement creates a contract, express or implied, of employment for any specified period and that my employment is at-will and may be terminated by the Organization at any time and for any reason.
The failure of the Organization at any time to require performance of any provision of this Agreement will not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter, nor shall the waiver by the Organization of a breach of any provision of this Agreement be taken or held to be a waiver of any succeeding breach of such provision, a waiver of the provision itself, or a waiver of any other provision of this Agreement.
This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties about the matters covered herein and no statement, promise, or inducement made by any person or agent of either party which is not contained in this Agreement shall be valid or binding. If any provision of this Agreement is declared or determined to be illegal or invalid, the validity of the remaining parts, terms or provisions shall not be affected thereby and the illegal or invalid part, term or provision shall be deemed not to be part of this Agreement.
This Agreement may be amended only by an instrument in writing signed by the parties hereto, and any provision hereof may be waived only by an instrument in writing signed by the party or parties against whom or which enforcement of such waiver is sought.
