And here we come to my previous post - these companies want to have people working for them who are not their employees (so they don't have to provide anything - no offices, no computers, no holidays, no sick pay, nothing) but they still want to make it look like as it makes no difference, so they can boast about being "ISO [or whatever] certified". Well, even little kids know you can't have your cake and eat it.


But unfortunately those companies will almost certainly find someone somewhere ready to accept such clauses (either because they don't just read what they're signing or because they believe they will always remain on paper), as is the case with any other unconscionable clause, from rates to payment terms, to liability, etc.

what might look like some evil conspiracy is nothing more than plain stupidity and / or incompetence.


You have no idea how much i wish it would be just that. But it is a bigger phenomenon that i studied for many years along with my friends. I was referring to a world wide situation. A world wide manifested intent.

I have lived in communism half of my life... well, almost half now that I am older... and as i said previously I can recognize oppression in its many forms. I pray to God that none of what is obviously going on on certain levels of the reality and society will be never concluded as per their intentions.

If we resist and if we stay aware and informed, they will never succeed.

Regarding the clauses, rejecting such contracts and demanding contracts without the audit clause I think remains the only eligible course of action.

Agree to not liking this, and not agreeing at all Jun 11

I don't know how many contracts with this clause in it I have refused. Every time the agency seems oblivious to the actual problem here.

If I sign your NDA I'm violating every past and future NDA I'll ever sign.

If you're OK with me letting you see my computer are you OK with me letting the other 150 or so agencies I have worked with at some stage seeing your stuff on my computer too? If that's the case, why bother with an NDA?

People who sign documents with this clause in it are either oblivious, don't care about client confidentiality, were forced to sign or not be paid for a job already completed or worse.
