Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
My name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney with 15 years experience. I'd like to assist you with your question for informational purposes.
The answer would depend on what type of contract you have with your former employer. It is possible that you have signed a contract with him stating that if you leave his employ, that you are required to leave the customers with his bank. However, I believe that it is unlikely that you did sign such a contract, because if he is not even up on the fair lending disclosures laws, then he probably did not have you sign such a contract. I hope this helps.
It is wrong of them to attempt to destroy documents, and that in and of itself, will make them look very bad if they ever sue you. I would not allow them to destroy the docs. If I have assisted you, please help me by giving me a positive rating. Thanks!
I apologize. I thought I answered your question, and I re-read the question and I can't see a question that I did not answer. In light of your comment, I will opt out of the question.
Hello again --
A different contributor here. My suggestion is that you put together a written journal or logbook and set forth all of the illegal practices that your former employer was making. Do not give into their demands and hand anything over to them and simply sit tight to see if they attempt to sue you for any of this. If they start contacting you with a lawyer then my suggestion is to contact the FBI with all of the information on the criminal violations committed by your former employer and the FBI will pull in all of the appropriate lending agencies at the federal level and my bet is that your former employer and anyone else who helped him engage in predatory lending practices deliberately will end up being pulled in and prosecuted. You were simply trying to survive and do your job and when what they asked you to do became more and more illegal or borderline illegal, you had to leave their employment and turn the matter over to the FBI. You can find the nearest FBI offices to you by doing a search online and then initiate telephone contact and tell them that you want to speak to an investigative agent regarding a mortgage fraud situation. They will either take the case or steer you to the right agency who will take the case.
Do you have any further questions for me? If not, can you please press a positive rating above these chat boxes so I will be paid for my time? I am paid nothing unless you press the middle star or the fourth or fifth star to the right of the middle star above in the ratings section. So, I really do appreciate that you want to make sure I am paid and given credit for my time for assisting you with this question. Your question will not close and you can come back in and ask follow up questions for several weeks after the question was asked. THANK YOU VERY MUCH
