Speaking of non-disparagement clauses…

You’ll sign one if you volunteer for Donald Trump.

I read this tidbit from 538’s Significant Digits and thought, “Could this be the bridge too far?” in the non-disclosure/non-disparagement employment contract business?

What do you think?

2,271 words

If you sign up to volunteer making phone calls for the Donald Trump campaign, you might want to retain counsel. Would-be volunteers are required to sign an unusual 2,271-word non-disclosure agreement. Among its stipulations: A volunteer must promise not to disparage Trump “during the term of your service and at all times thereafter.” For-ev-er. [The Cincinnati Enquirer]

P.S. Here’s my post about the letter a smart employment lawyer, Rita Tobin, wrote to the Times about these clauses and why there shouldn’t be any.

P.P.S. And here’s the full ThinkProgress story about this.
