Where do you draw the line between personal code and work code? (Legally)
My employer doesn't have much as far as written policy for software development and recently there has been a few lawsuits in my field so I'm trying to gauge where I have to draw my limits for my work. I have a few questions I want to ask our management but I feel like it would be suspicious if I asked them all at once… My personal development work somewhat overlaps with the development I do for my employer and I just want to cover my ass, just in case.
Could someone give me an idea of what is normal for software development? Also if anyone has any resources for this topic I would really appreciate it!
Can I rewrite code I previously wrote for another employer? (i.e. I don't have any of the code but I know how to write it)
Can I work on personal code (on personal time and equipment) related to work code? (i.e. same subject matter)
Can I rewrite code from scratch that I already wrote at work? (i.e. write code outside of work for a problem I already solved at work)
