I've found that some companies are very much against the individual and want indefinite confidentiality clauses.
I'm happy to sign a 2 year clause but an indefinite one is sickening to me. I'm working in medical devices not the CIA and ideas could be used elsewhere to save patient lives.
I have pushed back on the duration but the company is sticking with FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. Surely the law should be there to prevent morally bankrupt practices and intellectual enslavement?
Is an indefinite duration of confidentiality actually legal in the civilian sector? Is there anything I can do to push back on an indefinite duration of confidentiality?
FYI; I'm in the EU but the company is a US multinational.
