Something happened tonight that made me pick up my employment contract and read it again. As I was reading the whole document, it suddenly hit me that this document specifies restrictions applicable to me, as an employee of Yahoo!, but would not automatically transfer to either the executor of my estate or anybody whom I assign full power of attorney.
So assuming that I had already assigned full power of attorney to my father (or mother) before I had signed this particular contract, would a civil violation by them automatically make me liable ?
Well, I don't know ... but I intend to find out.--
I'm not a lawyer. I don't even play one on TV.
