I am in Japan and I am going to sign a new contract that stipulates
confidentiality, non-competition, non-solicitation, nothing else is specified. I know what that means but I don't really know what it involves for my future career if I decide to leave the startup.
They want to hire me for a very specific project in IT in Fintech.
- Does that mean I won't be allowed to work for another company in the same field?
- Does that mean I won't be allowed to work for another company doing the same/similar project? (in that case how much similar?)
Even if it seems very interesting, I am doubting signing such a contract. What does it mean generally? What are my options?
Of course I am gonna ask them to remove it or make it less restrictive by defining details about these terms but I'd like to know how this is handle in the real life by other people.
