I'm in the process of putting together a "work made for hire agreement" for my office and warehouse employees. Is there any other sort of agreement or contract that every employer should have his employees sign?

Are you asking in a public forum for advice on how to do something that's illegal in most places? If that's not what's going on, you may want to reword the question :)

WFH and NDA are our 1st steps.
We do work for clients, and the clients have to know:
What they pay us to do for them, is owned by them. We can't have our team members leave then claim ownership, so we Work For Hire everyone internally.
What private info we learn in the course of doing our job, isn't going to be shared with anyone else. So we Non Disclosure Agreement everyone internally.
But you really need to chat with a lawyer, or at least an HR person or a PEO counselor.

This is the kind of thing you need to hire an attorney for. Do not take chances - you will find yourself sued out of business.

lucy24, can you elaborate? I have no idea what you mean.
RhinoFish, is the NDA meant to prevent your employees from divulging personal info about your clients, or to keep trade secrets secret?
My business is conventional online retail so I'm looking for conventional advice.
