NDAs and Contracts That You Should Never Sign

NDAs and Contracts That You Should Never Sign

“…one clause … I consider quite unacceptable. It is a clause which forbids you to hire anybody who works for the company that is making you sign the NDA.” – Joel Spolsky

Yes.

I would add refuse to sign any NDA you weren’t given sufficient opportunity to read before otherwise committing yourself to a course of action. Least favorite NDA was one dropped on me first thing after a long (and personally expensive) plane flight which also happened to be the longest one I’d even seen.
