Legal Question

Asked on: 9/09/13, 12:33 pm

If I signed a document in the past that has this statement:

“sign all lawful documents and make all rightful oaths and declarations relating to said invention, execute and deliver any and all papers that may be necessary or desirable to perfect the title to this invention in said Assignee, its successors, legal representatives or assigns….”

Can my employer FORCE me to sign another document related to this patent - under threat of breach? Or does this qualify as being forced to sign under duress?
