I was a jail guard scheduled to go to basic training. The

I was a Virginia jail guard scheduled to go to basic training. The day before basic training I was told that I was being fired for failing an eight month performance review. I was only there for six months. I am over 40. The performance appraisal seemed to be fraudulently signed meaning a mid level supervisor signed the edge of the document and did not read what he was signing. The firing official kept referencing my failing an eight month appraisal in his decision to terminate me. I was not due for an appraisal for two months, and I would have received basic training the next day.

If I accept a new sales position based in California, my

If I accept a new sales position based in California, my employer wants me to sign a 1 year "non compete" agreement, with "Choice of Law and Forum" clauses/agreement tied to the state of New Hampshire laws. Since I will be an "At Will" employee, if for any reason I leave or am terminated, can this agreement be enforced if I were to go to another competitor in California?

Years I have been a third grade teacher at a Charter School

For 10 years I have been a third grade teacher at a Charter School in Arizona. I have now contracted with a public school for the coming school year and as such, will not be returning to my previous school. I just received a certified cease and desist letter threatening to withhold my June pay for breach of contract if I do not stop all communications regarding termination of employment including verbal, written or social media with parents. However, I have not breached the terms of my contract with them. Our contract did have non-compete terms such as stating that I can not work with in 18 miles of the school for a period of three months following termination. It also states that I may not solicit customers (parents of students) or other staff to go to a different school for a period of three months after termination. My new school is over 20 miles away from the old school and, although I did tell my students I was not returning, I have never solicited or even encouraged that anyone leave the school. Several of my former student's parents have become my friends over the years and have made comments to me on social media stating that I have been a good teacher or a joy in their lives and the lives of their children. They at times visit me at our family business (an ice cream store) during the summer. Again, I have not encouraged any of them to change schools. I am considering having an attorney respond to the letter I received and would like to know if I have anything to be concerned with or what my next steps should be. Should I contact a local attorney to help with this? Thanks
