Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Policy

J. Kent realizes that employees will be given access to and required to use confidential information during their employment with J. Kent. You may, from time to time, have assignments and job duties that give you access to confidential information of J. Kent, or of a Client. J. Kent requires employees to maintain as confidential information regarding other employees, job assignments, Clients (including any agent or employee of a Client), and vendors.

Confidential information is information that is not publically available and includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Names of Clients and vendors of J. Kent;
  • Information related to a Client or vendor’s business, such as customer lists, unique company processes, and details regarding contracts and relationships with vendors and other third-parties;
  • Financial information of a Client or vendor, such as balance sheets, business gains or losses, and banking information;
  • Marketing information and materials not available to the public;
  • Human resources and payroll information;
  • Legal documents;
  • Trade secrets;
  • Any medical information regarding employees, customers, Clients, or any third party; and
  • Names of employees, job duties and policies and procedures of J. Kent or of a Client.

This list of confidential information is not exhaustive, and J. Kent expects you to exercise common sense and discretion to determine whether information is confidential. You are not to disclose confidential information unless that disclosure is required within the scope of your job assignment. Confidential information may be written, unwritten and/or electronically stored.

Clients may require an employee to complete a Confidentiality Agreement if an assignment is anticipated to expose the employee to confidential information of a Client. If, however, such information is provided as a function of a position, and a Confidentiality Agreement hasn’t been provided, J. Kent expects employees to keep confidential information in the strictest confidence on behalf of J. Kent and all Clients.
