I wish I had a dollar for everyone who called and said “How can I make my employer give me a copy of the agreements I signed?”
My answer is usually – “you can’t.”
What I really want to say is “Don’t you have a copy?”
Virginians, lend me your ears.
KEEP A COPY OF ALL AGREEMENTS YOU SIGN, INCLUDING EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS.
If they ask you to sign a new one, ask for a copy of the new one.
Dan and I cannot review a contract unless you have a copy of the contract. Also, its not a good idea to ask HR for a copy randomly. They will think you are trying to leave and compete.
So please, keep a copy. You will be glad you did.
