Signing off intellectual property rights to work you created as part of practicing your employment functions is pretty standard. But this contract goes far further than usual, at least in my jurisdiction (I do not know about what's usual in India). But a contract is the result of a negotiation. When a contract has clauses you can not accept, then you can ...

Sign it or don't sign it. It really depends whether you think you're going to do anything really worthwhile in the 12 months after you leave. And that's assuming it's something related to the "goods and services" you were working on at this company. Years ago, I worked for a startup which did something similar. A few weeks after signing, when I had created ...

This is terribly exploitative. I have seen clauses like this for people working in research & development where they are employed to create intellectual property, but not for anything after the employment, and definitely not for an internship. In the EU and in California this would be very unlikely to hold up in court, so you would never accept this in ...

I immediately contacted the founder (who handles pay) and told him the mistake and he turns around and says "Oh I thought that was what we agreed! You should have done so in writing over email (or over Slack maybe). But no worries, you can still memorialize the conversation retroactively. This message is to memorialize our conversation from two ...

At the end of the day a contract is just a signed piece of paper in which the parties agree to something that can be legally enforced at a later date (technically it doesn't even have to be on paper but that is preferable). There is nothing stopping you simply printing out (preferably on letterhead paper if such exists) As of [date], [your name]'s salary is ...

Do the slack messages (all of which I have screen grabbed and saved externally) combined with my pay checks which clearly state how much I have been given, constitute as enough evidence that I was legitimately given the additional money by the company? Any proof of communication with your manager(s) where they agree that the money transferred are according ...

If you are working in Germany, and at the same company for ten years, then German law puts facts ahead of contracts. In this case, the FACT that you worked there for ten years would override the CONTRACT that says your employment is for say one year only. You cannot use contracts to change facts in Germany. In practice this means that your notice period and ...

Job ads aren't contracts. There's nothing illegal about misrepresenting a job opening in a help-wanted posting, either on your employer's web site or some job board. But it is strange behavior. Hiring good people is really hard work, and keeping good people on the payroll isn't easy. If your org has a full-time job to offer it's wise to mention that fact ...

I doubt there is anything you can do Aren't job postings considered legal contracts? No, they are advertisements. Job postings don't even need to have a real job behind them. Plenty of companies post them to see if some star walks in the door. Inaccuracies are almost something to be assumed when applying for a job. HR refused to correct the errors. ...
