Do Freelancers Need to Sign an NDA

Do Freelancers Need to Sign an NDA

Do freelancers need to sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) and what is your responsibility once they put their signature on that piece of paper?

Freelancers work with multiple clients at the same time and comparing to employees, they are not bound by a contract of employment. In such cases, many employers fear that the information they are sharing will land in the wrong hands.

In this episode, you will…

  • Learn what is an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) and what purpose it serves
  • Understand what questions you should ask your client before signing an NDA
  • Find out what are your legal responsibilities as a freelancer once you signed an NDA


  • ''All the big freelancing platforms such as Upwork, Freelancer, Fiverr, they have it integrated on their platform that you legally agree not to publish any confidential information or work results. I know that you never read it when you signed up, however when you have time go through this, so you know what you signed up for.''
  • ''Please remember, a freelancer is not owning the copyright of the work they are completing for a client, it belongs to the person that is paying for the deliverable.''
  • ''A non-confidentiality agreement can be signed by both parties, the freelancer, and the client. There are cases when it is drafted by the client and signed by the freelancer.''
