At my current workplace I am being offered to sign an employment-agreement which has a life-long consequences. Specifically it says that even after the termination from the workplace I will still have some obligations to the company. And I am not quite comfortable with it.
I expect to have no obligations to the company after the termination plus some limited time (e.g. 12 months).
Specifically the agreement says:
Facilitation of Agreement. Consultant agrees to execute promptly, both during and after the end of the Relationship, any proper oath, and to verify any proper document, required to carry out the terms of this Agreement, upon the Company’s written request to do so.
I'm not quite comfortable with the
and after the end of the Relationship part. I don't want them calling me after 5 years and claiming anything.
I haven't signed any employment-agreements with such phrasings before in my life so the question is: is it (a life-long obligation) a common practice or something extraordinary? If it's something extraordinary I can try to negotiate the removal of this phrasing.
Update: the company is located in the State of Delaware U.S.A. though I live in Russia and I'm going to work remotely.
