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
of course, no company would voluntarily agree to it
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 system1👍
All states but Montana are I believe
we need a Guild2
that promotes standards on fair contracts, for employment, legal, startups and consultants
we have standards for everything else… but not on employment
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/2👍2😎
