Among AI companies that employ AI alignment/policy researchers (e.g. DeepMind, OpenAI, Anthropic, Conjecture), which companies make such researchers sign a non-disparagement clause?

Also, what are the details of such non-disparagement clauses? (Do they aim to restrict such researchers indefinitely, even after they leave the company?)

I do NOT advise accessing this from a company device. Your employer can, and will likely, track visits to a resource like this Handbook.

Business Insider's review of 36 NDAs in the tech industry:

More than two-thirds of workers who shared their agreements with Insider said they weren’t exactly sure what the documents prevented them from saying—or whether even sharing them was a violation of the agreement itself.
