    I know this lady and I don’t think she’d lie about something like this.

  • We work. Honestly that whole company looks super sketchy to me. They have that culture going on where no employees can eat meat.

      Why not, if you signed it, and you weren't under stress or pressure to sign it, why wouldn't a judge honer it?

      Yeah right, a judge will likely side with the written contract. The law is about agreements and wording, not what "makes sense"

      Signing a contract doesn't automatically make it legally binding. You can sign a contract selling your first born child, but it would never be able to be enforced.

    Signing these things is always pretty sketchy for me but what choice do we have? My saving grace is that unlike her I don’t usually do any side projects or businesses. We need legislation to get rid of this sort of anti-employee bs. California’s laws are a good start but not quite there

    • You always have the choice.
      If a company is really sticky about it, better not sign the contract.

      The choice is saying "nope".

      It’s not really a choice if most companies have such contracts. We gotta work for a living you know.

      It really is a choice though. I know, I work for a living.

    The wording is indeed in the contract for those who are reading this in the future. In CA you’re protected, but not in WA.

    There’s no point in getting defensive—WeWork did indeed fuck up here. The lesson to learn is that “We” need to do better next time.

    All I’m doing here right now is hoping Uber 2.0 doesn’t happen.

      It’s not the wording in my contract. I wonder if it was changed at some point?

      Maybe, if you came earlier you might not have it.

      I started within the last 6 or so months

      I mean, there’s wording for non-compete but it’s pretty specific and the same as any other tech company.

  • Nothing scandalous about an employer wanting to protect their IP and only hiring people who will agree not to compete with them.

    Employers can decline to hire anyone long as they’re not discriminating based on protected class.

    Notice she never posted the actual wording?

    Restrictive hiring are usually agreements between employee and employer where the employee only works for one company.

    It’s a normal and necessary thing to do in a world where companies can go under because of moonlighting employees sharing information or helping out future competitors.
