We purchased via the lawdepot website a contract that includes a 'non-cometition' clause which by the wording and definition covers us for any employee pursuing employment with a direct competitor.
we have an employee who has given notice/quit to pursue work with a competitor. He checked on the same website and found a definition of 'non-compete' that says an employee *can* be employmed in the same field for a competitor. He has since given us a letter stating that we need to give him 'permission' to pursue the employment. The company that he has been offered a position with knows he was our employee, knows that he signed a 'non-competition' claused contract with us. I need to know what recourse we have from this point on.
I'm sorry. I don't know the answer to that directly. From what I understand, when purchasing the contract it is specified to the country/province where the purchase is made. My 'assumption' is that all is good.
yes. both within the same province as well.
is there someone that I can be referred to?
will the new expert continue on this string? I've had nothing appear on my computer and I need to leave fairly soon.
No one ever came online to continue the conversation.
