in reply to Professional Employees and Works for Hire

All I can say is "Man, that sucks!"...

I recently signed one of those agreements, lucky for me the agreement is null and void, if some of what I'm reading on /. is true, since I'm in California. Of course I didn't know about California's section 2870 when I signed the thing, but I signed it anyway because I've been out of work a couple of months and I've got family to support.

About 8 or 9 years ago, I remember reading a copy of a California Labor law that said basically that you had even had a right to use company property for personal purposes, e.g., if your job is to produce spreadsheets but you want to learn word processing, you could use your work computer to do that, if it wasn't being used for anything else anyway, for x hours a day, on your own time. Don't quote me on that though, since I don't know what law that was, if it's still in effect, or what relevance it has here...

If I ever move out of state and add anything to CPAN, tell Trimbach that my wife did it :-)

[ambrus]: We no longer eat there.
LanX Everybody quotes it, some people read it, and a few people go by it
[ambrus]: LanX: why would I read it? isn't it a book for managers? I don't want to be a manager.
[ambrus]: I don't quote it either.
[erix]: it's really a software book, albeit about experiences from the 60s-80s. People haven't changed all that much though.
[erix]: a software project book, is probably more exact
[ambrus]: Yes, but I'm not managing software teams either.
[ambrus]: I'm not only not a restaurant manager, but also not a software manager.
[erix]: Peter's principle says it' sonly a matter of time ;)
