I worked as an RF Engineer for a very small company
until I was laid off one month ago.
Today, I received a confidentiality
agreement plus a request to sign and return it to them in the mail today.
Has anyone ever been asked to sign similar documents after there
employment has been terminated?
Thanks for your input.

Do not sign it.. Normally that is something that you sign
at the beginning of your employment. If you sign it now you are basically
limiting yourself for future employment, like your previous employers

would send it back to them unsigned along with a note that said that
you would be more than happy to sign it for a cash payment of $500,000.
They obviously feel like they screwed up and that you might talk. You
are under no obligation to keep your mouth shut.
