Problem clients.
It's an interesting point. In at least a few jurisdictions around here, current permitted plans, under construction, are freely available to the public, and wouldn't be protected by a non-disclosure.

Things might be different in your location, and your agreement might not be simply a confidentiality agreement, and what's good business might be different from what an attorney says, etc.....

I'd sure find out exactly what she means by proof.

And I'd be concerned as much about the trustworthiness of the plumber as by the legal question with the owner. Aside from the legal question, the plumber needs to respect your situation.

Re: Confidentiality Agreement


So we're considering firing the plumber for sharing public knowledge?

Am I on the right website? Hello?

Re: Confidentiality Agreement


here all permits are open prints are closed this home is just south of the twin cities will have to look into it.
what it is coming down to is the plumber was talking to another plumber about how to do and what to do with a few things on this home.
the other plumber ran into the owner and said i see you are building a new home blaw blaw. the owner has a strong dislike for the other plumber.
i should of called my plumber as soon as i got the call from the owner last night it would of been better but i did not

Nobody knows if he violated whatever term(s) of whatever agreements(s) there may or may not be, and we don't know if all or part of the information is "public knowledge".

Then he was doing this as part of his job, just like asking for some advice at a plumbing supply house or manufacturer. Is that allowed?

Your plumber wasn't so silly as to give or let the other plumber make a copy of the plans, was he?

Re: Confidentiality Agreement


On the plus side, if your plumber is kept on, he's unlikely to make the same mistake again. You can't say that about any other plumber that's brought on board, and they'll likely have the same questions about the best way to do certain things.

Re: Confidentiality Agreement


he has been with me for over 30 years. he knows what i want before i ask him most of the time. it is just a bad thing to have to deal with before we start to frame. i have over a year into this home to get to this point no i will not walk away from a 2.6 m dollar job because there is a problem on the job. every job has a few of them you have to deal with them and go on.

Re: Confidentiality Agreement


So this boils down to two plumbers talking shop about a job? Confidentiality Agreement or not, the HO just sounds nutty by freaking out about it. When I have questions about a job I always talk to other carpenter friends (or come on here) about the best way to proceed. I already have the job, so I don't feel threatened that they'll take my job. I've done several jobs for 'High Interest Clients' (We call them HIC's ), and have signed many CA's without any issues, excepting one famous country singer who was a COMPLETE A-HOLE.

Yeah, a 2.6 million dollar job is hard to find, but 30-year relationships with subs come and go all the time.
