I have recently put my resignation (having a good offer from another organization). I have a good reputation with employees and management of my current organization.
I have been an exceptional contributor, have won several awards and have a patent on my name too.
In recent years, I have worked on several ideas/innovations and successfully implemented those for my current organizations.
My reporting manager wants me to completely implement one of his idea (of which initially I was a part of and did most of the implementations) before I leave.
However, due to some personal preferences, I am planning to wrap up other tasks, since I did half of his idea implementation.
He said he would sign the reliving form only if he can see this all working. I am not sure how to handle this and I am afraid that even if I make it successful, he would still want me to add/implement more.
He says if it can be a patent/trade secret, we both will be owners.
I do not trust his words, at the same time I am afraid that he may create any havoc during my last date, and will not sign the reliving form.
Any suggestion on how to approach would be very helpful.
PS: This idea implementation is technical in nature (required programming skills and specific hardware knowledge) and it does not affect any of project deadlines/milestones
