California Employment Law

My company has a policy regarding exit interviews that says "One of the subjects we will likely inquire about during the separation process is any future employment plans. The reason we do so is to identify situations where your may be joining one of our competitors. This will enable us to apprise you of applicable post-employment policies, such as our confidentiality policy. If you refuse to identify your future employer or do not otherwise cooperate with us regarding your exit, XXXXXX reserves the right to treat any accrued but unused PTO time as forfeited, unless state law dictates otherwise." This policy became effective 2008. I started with the company 11/09. So my question is, does CA labor law dictate otherwise? I am going to interview for another job and want to know my rights. I do not wish to say where I'm going if I accept the postion. Thank you for your consideration of this matter.
I downloaded and printed 32 pages of CA labor law. I think what my employer is saying is illegal but I want to make sure as interview is tomorrow.
No worries. It looks more "official" that way. I got the new position and will be informing present employer tomorrow. Now to write that resignation letter....
