I was a CO Tech and they walked three of us out at the same time. Gave us like an 80 page document and we had 45 days to sign it saying we agreed to their 1 year non compete clause and no working for a contractor for six months, and laughably, that we would not bad mouth the company to anyone. If they caught you working for a competitor they would make you repay your severance and if you bed mouthed them, they would sue you and take back your severance. Basically blackmail. When you have years of pay and unemployment at stake, you don’t have much of a choice.
post @1mdh+1apjtoc2 : Well this is really awful. If this non compete clause is a condition for me to get severance, then I would rather not take it.
