    Some questions about contracts...

    I have worked for a few companies and I had a job with the government that had a high level of sensitivity with some information, so over the years I have signed several contracts giving each company and that government agency permission to do such things as put a security camera in my workspace, check my email, search my car, and take other such security measures if they suspected that I was misusing work-related information.

    Here are my questions:

    1. When I left each of these jobs, were these contracts immediately invalid, or do these companies and this agency still have the legal right to check my email and so forth?
    2. Is there a way that I can find out any and all contracts that I have signed that are currently in force?
    3. Can a company legally transfer such a contract regarding my personal privacy to another company without notifying me?
    4. Is there a way that I can invalidate any and all of these contracts? (I know that in real estate law I can post signs or send notices to the government to legally protect myself from adverse possession issues--can I do something to invalidate any prior contracts that I have signed regarding my personal privacy that a given company may consider to still be in force?)

    1. This depends on the specific text of the contract.
    2. You can call each previous employer and request a copy of your agreement with them.
    3. Not likely but the company may be able to outsource their security to another company that would monitor you.


    I don't really see any of these being issues since you are no longer employed with these companies but these are all questions that you can ask to your former employers.
