In worse case release this software trough your family member and indicate yourself as developer with nickname and so you should escape your employer's seizure of copyright.

You need help from software freedom conservancy. The lawyers. I just listened to their podcast: 'free as in freedom' refering to the contract you sign on joining mentioned in other responses.

Free as in Freedom: 0x5E: Conservancy's ContractPatch Initiative

There are links there to the audio oggcast and to the blog posts which might be worth a read.

It might be worth joining their mailing list as well.

Good luck.
