Man, and we thought cyberpunk authors were exaggerating with their zaibatsus and their corporate ownership
@JordiGH Someone tried pulling that shit in a country with working employment laws and worker organisation and they would either be laughed at or in a court faster than they can hit send.
@JordiGH that is fucking crazy. I think that at least in the EU, an employee has the right to disconnect from work. You're not 100% of your time an employee.
@soapdog I am wondering about those contract clauses that say you can't work on a competing product. Is this what they mean with 100% of your time? You can't use your free time to work on a competing product?
@JordiGH that is a whole different problem, and will vary per contract and per location, because in some locations these contracts are less enforceable than they seem.
I fear employers - and some employees - need to be reminded that it's just a fucking job. The New Feudalism is tiresome.
