I've worked at my current employer for a little more than seven years. We're a small startup of about 20 employees. At the beginning of 2014, we started a new project that I was and still am involved in. Fast forward to today, my employer is asking me to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Ordinarily that wouldn't be an issue for me but the document is backdated to the start of the project so that it looks like I signed it in early 2014. The agreement contains the usual punitive verbiage and looks like a typical non-disclosure agreement.
I don't object to the agreement but I do have a problem with the backdated aspect. I'm not worried that I've done anything wrong but I just feel like that's a lot to ask of me. I've never been asked to sign any legal document that was backdated like this. I think it would be best to avoid signing the agreement but how can I address my concerns with out creating much conflict with my employer?
