Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today.

Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 9 months ago.

So that I'm clear, he never actually started to work for you?

Also, with what specific question can I assist?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
that's correct, he never actually started working here. he signed a Non-Solicitation and Non-Competition Agreement that I'd like to write a complete release, and he signed an IP and Confidentiality Agreement that I'd like to write a release from the IP portions. I want the Confidentiality provisions to remain in place to cover anything that he learned before deciding not to come to work here.
Can you help me write those two things?
Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 9 months ago.

No, unfortunately we're not allowed to assist in preparing documents. I'll opt out and open it back up in case another expert has some kind of suggestion for you. No need to reply, this will automatically be placed in the queue for other experts.

Welcome to Just Answer! My name is Maverick. Please give me a few minutes to review, analyze and/or research your inquiry and I will be back. Thank you for your patience.

You can try to do this yourself by using this document as a go-by.

What you would want to do is attach a copy of the 2 agreements you mentioned and identify the clauses that you and he still agree to be bound by and list them as exceptions in the section that asks for the termination date. Other changes may have to be made at your discretion; but you get the gist.
