  • Can one be fired for not signing an intellectual property agreement California

    My company is asking me to sign a very comprehensive agreement regarding intellectual property. I feel very vulnerable in that they wrote this highly legal document (which I've read) and they expect me to sign it, but I can't really interpret all the nuances. If I don't sign this, can that be cause for them to fire me?

      Agree with DAW but you might want to have an attorney review it & explain
      anything you don't understand.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

        I'd certainly fire anyone who refused to sign.

          Agree you should see an attorney and have him/her explain the contents of the document to you. Tell your employer you're willing to sign but that you need a little time in order to consult with an attorney as you don't understand all the particulars.

          Yes, they can fire you if you refuse to sign.
