I was released from my job last August. I was given a severance package and an agreement stating that the release was mutual and I was in good standing with the company.
Employees at the same company were told by the Executive Director of the company that they are not allowed to talk to, about, or socialize with any employee who used to work at the company anytime or any day. If "caught" they will be terminated from employment. The above is to include parties at someone's house after work or on the weekends. Can the company legally do that? Threaten, and or fire, workers if they are outside work on their own time?
