laid-off and confused - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I worked as an RF Engineer for a very small company until I was laid off one month ago.
Today, I received a confidentiality agreement plus a request to sign and return it to them in the mail today.
Has anyone ever been asked to sign similar documents after there employment has been terminated?
Thanks for your input.

Do not sign it.. Normally that is something that you sign at the beginning of your employment. If you sign it now you are basically limiting yourself for future employment, like your previous employers competitor.

I would send it back to them unsigned along with a note that said that you would be more than happy to sign it for a cash payment of $500,000. They obviously feel like they screwed up and that you might talk. You are under no obligation to keep your mouth shut.
