I am a software engineer, working for an organisation since 4 years. 3 years earlier, I have joined a project with a client of my employer, while still being on payroll of the employer. I am still in the same project. Now, today(June, 2020) the client is asking for an IPR declaration involving me directly, effective from June, 2017. I am a bit sceptical and not sure if it is even legal to sign a pre dated document.
Shouldn't the client have such legal declarations with my employer itself instead of reeling me in for direct legal bindings ?
The document sought named "Confirmatory Assignment Agreement" is attached.
Request you to kindly help understand the implications.
