I recently resigned my job because they put me on a questionable "PIP" program. I was offered a job by a competitor that I worked for previously for 12 years. I accepted the offer, knowing I would be out of work in early December, and my other company that is a multi million dollar firm out of Quebec, Canada is enforcing the non-compete and saying I need to rescind the offer! That would leave this single mother of two out of work in the state of Oregon. What do I do? Thanks Jeanne
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I live in Corvallis, Oregon.
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will
," union, full time or part time?
Customer: Oregon is an At Will state but I don't know about the company.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I just don't know what to do or if I have any recourse. I need a job and don't understand why they would do this if they were not happy with my performance. I will not be calling on any of the same customers in the territory either.
