Customer Question

i have been working for the same company since 2004. When i signed my employment agreement it has an annexed deed attached restricting my trade for a period of one year. I subsequently changed jobs within the company in 2005 and a new contract and deed was signed. after one year i returned to my previous role and a new contract was signed and dated in 2006. There was no annexed deed ever signed with this contract. As the 2006 contract makes all previous contracts null and void, does it also make all previous deeds void?
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Victoria
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
Customer: full time
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Hello
Forget the restraint of trade, they are seldom able to be enforced.

Secondly from a contractual point of view, as the deed was not annexed (with the new agreement), it is not part of the contract and thus irrelevant anyway.
