I've terminated the employee and have now discovered that they were fired for check fraud in the past. I'm writing them a letter to discontinue what they are doing and informing them that I will disclose to customers and the suppliers we work with the reasons for their termination -- am I allowed to do this.
I've already asked them and they of course deny the action. Can I call the police and file a police report, would you recommend this
I terminated the employ because of his past criminal record. I have proof of his conviction. I've told that I am allowed to disclose this because it is true.
Please read this link -- http://jobsearch.about.com/od/backgroundcheck/f/whatemployerscansay.htm
I'm going to write an email to the former employee and notify him that I will be contacting his previous customers and suppliers and notifying them of his conviction. I will do this to help protect the customers and suppliers from his actions. I'm I allowed to do this
I want to inform the customers because he is going to go back and will slam the customer. He will have the customer sign another contract. I've already paid the employee the commission upfront.
If he slams the customer again the contract that they currently have will be void and I will lose the commission I paid him. So I could be out a substantial amount of money if I don't stop him.
I want to inform customers that we fired him due to his criminally background and request that they DO NOT sign anything he presents to them because they will have to pay large early termination fees.
I'm going to send an email to my former employee stating my acitons because I want to prevent him from doing this. I've already contacted some of his customers and he's already begun this. I also want to state in the letter that I will be contacting authorities which I will because I think this is the only thing that will stop him.
Due you agree with my actions, thanks
Tortious interference with contract rights can occur where the tortfeasor convinces a party to breach the contract against the plaintiff, or where the tortfeasor disrupts the ability of one party to perform his obligations under the contract, thereby preventing the plaintiff from receiving the performance promised. The classic example of this tort occurs when one party induces another party to breach a contract with a third party, in circumstances where the first party has no privilege to act as it does and acts with knowledge of the existence of the contract. Such conduct is termed tortious inducement of breach of contract.
Tortious interference with business relationships occurs where the tortfeasor acts to prevent the plaintiff from successfully establishing or maintaining business relationships. This tort may occur when a first party's conduct intentionally causes a second party not to enter into a business relationship with a third party that otherwise would probably have occurred. Such conduct is termed tortious interference with prospective business relations, expectations, or advantage or with prospective economic advantage. [Wikipedia]
Great thanks I will do just that I'm typing an email stating that I will be contacting his former clients and then letting them know of his actions and to not sign any contracts. I will also let him know in the email that we will be contacting the authorities which we will be
