Company makes a guy sign a NDA, which prevents him from talking to said company after they fire him.



If you didn't know what a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement), before Donald Trump was elected President, I'm pretty sure you know what they are now. Considering he sued/was sued over a few of them during his single term. If you still don't know here is a definintion:


"A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is an agreement in contract law that certain information will remain confidential. As such, an NDA binds a person who has signed it and prevents them from discussing any information included in the contract with any non-authorized party. NDAs are commonly used to protect trade secrets, client information, and other sensitive or valuable information. Sharing information in spite of an NDA qualifies as a breach of contract and can open the breaching party up to a lawsuit. An NDA can continue indefinitely or can include a duration clause that stipulates an end date of the agreement."





They're a hotly debated topic and a lot of people think they're being abused.


-"As per my NDA, I am not allowed to discuss this position with former employers. Since my firing is effective immediately you are now a former employer"


Someone recently shared a story about a time they were employed with a company. The company made him sign a NDA and hilarity ensued when they fired him.




I think my favorite part of the story is the company attorneys agreeing with the guy.
