Someone should tell that to a company I work for. 2 times this month already they have had us sign another more detailed non-compete. I can only guess they are trying to close some holes that cost them.

and this is why labor unions came into being in the first place......crap like this....and the more you de-unionize, the more this will happen.....all of this was explained 80 to 100 years ago when unions were first starting to form. of course back then, workers were dying because of the corners cut by the owners.
Not a leap at all.
The only need for a binding contract is for future enforcement... as in breach of contract if you do not fulfill their idea of "reasonable" servitude.
Okay... if that's what you want to believe... what the truth is none of us really know.

I'm just pointing out that the OP article is one side of the story and can't be verified.

not a very smart company, I wouldn`t want a bunch of laid off disgruntled people handling my IT.
if the laid off workers do a crappy job what is the company gonna do, fire them?
The company would be spending a fortune for new computers because I would tell everyone who called that their computer is wrecked and they need a new one.
However, SunTrust was given an opportunity to give their side of the story and chose not to, but did give a statement. SunTrust could easily verify or refute the story. Instead we got weasel words. Their choice.
It is a rare occasion when we need to call a former employee. The “continuing cooperation” clause is designed to assist the company under scenarios that arise infrequently when we need access to knowledge possessed by a former employee. Those scenarios primarily relate to regulatory or legal matters. For instance, we may need to reach out to former employees to ensure we accurately understand situations in which they were involved while employed by the company. SunTrust has never used this provision to require a former employee to be “on call” to help conduct day-to-day business in any way.
The Georgia Department of Labor requires you to report all severance payments received at the time you file an unemployment claim with the agency. In the event you don’t receive severance payments until after the claim is filed, you still have an obligation to report each one to your local GDOL career center. If you’re receiving severance payments over time, and your weekly payment is greater than the amount of weekly unemployment benefits you’re eligible for, you can’t claim any Georgia unemployment benefits until your severance package is paid in full.
