California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Hi, I spoke with a current employee friend. He confirmed that we both signed a contract with the temp company. We also have a 6 month no compete clause if I am not mistaken. Also, the job is in Ca, where I reside, but the temp company is out of state. I believe the main branch is in Texas. Which state laws apply in a case like this?
I am still looking for the contract. I realize this is more than the standard $21 answer, and my tip will reflect that. I will keep this open and contact you when I find and have re-read my contract.
thanks for your patience. I have found the offer letter. It was with all of my other paperwork and is the only papers which are actually from the temp company to me. The rest are release forms for background checks. There are only 2 pages which read:
"Based upon our review of your qualifications and the personal intervies by "Temp Company Name" and our teaming partner, HP, we are pleased to present this offer of employment as a Customer Service Representative, working on our project at the...... center.
It gives my rate of pay, paid time of info (none), major med (none), 401 k information (after 1 year). I was there 1.5 years. Time off clause and a Non-compete clause with the temp company. Final pay info.
I signed and dated it, it had the signature (was faxed to me) of the Director of Operations. Who I believe is also the head of HR dept.
I realize the above information is not what you wanted to hear and I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX had better news to give you, but I hope you appreciate an honest and direct answer to your question. It would be unprofessional of me and unfair to you to provide you with anything less.
Please let me know if you have any follow up or clarifying questions as I want to ensure that you are completely satisfied with my service. Definitely contact me if you are contemplating leaving me a negative rating, as I’ll be happy to continue to address your concerns until you are satisfied with my service.
