    What should marta do?

  • She should refuse to agree to waiving any of her legal rights. Not to do so would leave her vulnerable to being fired by the company for any reason whatsoever, even morally questionable reasons.
  • She should ask for more time to study the employment contract before signing. Then she should examine very carefully the company's past employment issues. Maybe the company's record is questionable and this has led them to take such a stance toward wrongful dismissal suits.
  • Marta should ask for more time to think about the employment offer and the contractual terms. Then she should try to find another position and only if she fails in this effort should she accept the offer as the best thing she can do.
  • Your solution....

6. can i use what i have already learned?

Mega Weapons, Inc. (MW) has been awarded a lucrative contract with the U.S. military to develop guided, non-nuclear missiles. This contract is based on MW’s considerable success in developing highly accurate computer guidance systems. While working with MW, you have had access to the details of these guidance systems, including information owned by MW and protected by the law. Recently, you have received a job offer from Amaco Arms, Inc. (AA). This offer came about through an unsolicited recommendation by a former classmate of yours; he now works for Amaco, is familiar with your experience and expertise, and suggested to his supervisors at Amaco that they try to hire you away from Mega Weapons. You will be helping them develop guidance systems for missiles and will be doing work similar to the work you are doing with Mega Weapons. AA competes directly with ME for military weapons contracts. It is more than likely that protected information you have had access to while working with Mega Weapons would be useful for what you would be doing with Amaco.

    What would you do if you were in this position>

  • You should accept the new job. After all, your classmate has done you a favor. It's a lot more money, and you are certainly in a position to help AA.
  • You should not accept this job offer since it is clear that your former classmate and AA are only interested in the proprietary and confidential information you have about MW.
  • You should accept the job but only after you have done two things. First, you need to consult with MW to define precisely the boundaries of your confidentiality obligations. Then you should make these boundaries clear to AA and only if they accept these boundaries should you agree to work for them.
  • Your solution....

7. you can't take it with you

You are leaving Computing Systems, Inc. to work for Compware, Inc,. a competitor. Before you leave Computing Systems, you are debriefed by the Personnel Office and a company lawyer on the proprietary information you have had access to while working with Computing Systems. They have itemized the information that you cannot divulge to or use in your work with Compware. It is your professional judgment that they are including information that is general knowledge and should not be considered confidential or proprietary. It is also information that would be useful—even essential—for what you will be doing in your new job. You feel that this confidentiality agreement is overly restrictive and would handicap you in your new job. What should you do?
