I live in Ohio. A new unpaid internship I got is asking me to sign a Confidentiality/NSA, and I am not sure some of the terms are enforceable or even legal. 1 item actively states that injunctive relief/legal damages can be sought "without limitation" if a breach comes to that. They even go so far as to have you admit "remedies at law are inadequate". The 2nd is a clause that new positions 1 year after the internship must be reported to them so they can "determine activities fall within scope of activities prohibited by the provisions of this agreement". For that, I am an intern, of course a new position I obtain afterwards will be similar.
Another clause mentions modifications can be made if both parties sign off on them, should I go for that?
The clauses you point to are very common in a non-compete contract.
You will need a lawyer to review the entire document before you start to negotiate.
