In my current job I've been faced with totally unrealistic expectations since the beginning.
Naive as I am, I worked 70h/week (everything above 40 being unpaid) for several months.
Since my boss resulted to be a jerk who offered me 0 recognition for that, I'm planning to leave the company soon.
There are several scripts however which I created in my "free", i.e. unpaid time but used for work. In my work contract there's a sentence that everything created on my work computer is company's property. I did not create the scripts on my work computer or during my paid working hours. I did copy it on the work computer and I've been using it on my work computer though.
I don't want the company to have the script when I'm gone. I hope I'm right that the company has no right to the scripts.
Should I simply delete them? But then the company can recover my deleted files. Or should I explain before leaving that the company has no right to these files.
