Response
: No. Once signed, the employee cannot retract the signed job description and confidentiality agreement (collectively called “it”). There is no right to cancel within 72-hours of signing it. Once signed, the employee is bound by it. If the employee violates the terms of the signed documents, then the employer can discipline the employee including reimbursement for any damages caused by the employee for wrongful disclosure of confidential information or for misusing the company's property.
