Actually, I don't see any reason why one should worry about signing the so-called non-disclosure agreement. To me, it has very little bite.

hi mr siew

the non-disclosure agreement has some ridiculous terms which even covers marketing strategies and know how and leads gained thru telemarketing process (close contacts of sales staff). it also says that the terms in the non-disclosure agreement will last for 10 years after a staff leaves the company and also says that the staff cannot work in the same industry for a period of 1 year from resignation.

if a staff cannot bring their knowledge with them, then where do they go work?

also is it legal for the mgmt to hold back the staffs salary just because they dont want to sign the document?

You can always throw them a challenge see whether they dare to do it or not. If they do, complain to the Labour Office. That's what you can do.
