My university has asked every student with an offer to post his/her offer letter in a google drive link.
Almost every company who hire here are US based. Specific US city wise: San Jose, Seattle, San Francisco. Mainly US west cost : Californian companies dominating followed by 3-4 Wall street banks like Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley etc.
Coming to the college itself, it's like an Indian government institution, they will not listen to "rules". They will threaten students on withholding their bachelor's degrees if they don't agree to uploading their offer.
Almost every offer letter in the shared folder has NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement). Now I have read a few resources on whether an offer letter is confidential or not and I am still on the fence about it's confidentiality. But there are some offers which clearly mention that the letter itself is confidential too.
My questions are: - Is this legal under the terms of offer letter?
What are the consequences of uploading the letter here?
What happens if the companies find out about this?
- University is in India. In Indian colleges, ok the last year of bachelors degree a "placements season" is conducted where companies come and recruit students. This "placements" is done by a "placements department" and that's the department which has asked students to upload their letters.
