You'll find that in several US states, "at-will" employment is state law so companies won't/can't add such a clause.

i imagine states can contractually obligate themselves to this. its just a promise to behave in a certain way that is not contrary to law. that said, i don't see why any company would do this. i also have never run into this issue ever.

Well, California and NYC are employment-at-will… unless in certain cases, like public sector

hipster coder 2020-11-24T18:31:35.107800Z

of course, no company would voluntarily agree to it

hipster coder 2020-11-24T18:31:53.108200Z

because they could claw back your stock, even after a discharge, without cause

RSUs can be clawed back… depending on the employment contract

I think Professor Wolf has a point… it’s time for co-ops… that’s the future

think about it… all of us… mostly have futurist ideas… but we are stuck in this old industrial system

that promotes standards on fair contracts, for employment, legal, startups and consultants

hipster coder 2020-11-24T18:45:22.111Z

we have standards for everything else… but not on employment

hipster coder 2020-11-24T18:45:53.111500Z

tech is really behind the other industries… we read and study as much as most doctors… but no standards

You should check out Tech Workers' Coalition! They're fighting for a lot of the protections you describe. https://techworkerscoalition.org/

Kickstarter also unionized earlier this year, becoming the first major software company to do so: https://www.wired.com/story/how-kickstarter-employees-formed-union/
