Anyone use a confidentiality agreement for employees so that they won't give away recipes?

Sorry no one has been able to help you on this.
I didn't have employees - and that was one of the reasons.

Since most of my recipes come from the internet and cookbooks, I"m not all that worried about it. So no, I don't use one.

I don't have any employees just yet, but none of the professional kitchens or studios I have worked or interned in (inlcuding Pink Cake Box) have required this of me. I make cakes and desserts... I don't hold the secret formula for coca cola lol. Most of my recipes I have developed on my own, but they're not SOOO different that someone else might not make them the exact same way somewhere else. I don't hand my recipes out to anyone and everyone, nor do I post most of them here, but if an employee wanted to use them at some later date, then so be it. I have one cookie recipe I guard with my life, because it is truly original and I've never tasted another like it, but otherwise, it's not big deal.
