I may be dismissed from service. I am a government employee,

I may be dismissed from service. I am a government employee, GS13-10 under FERS. I am 55 1/2 yrs old and have nearly 24 years of service. I have lost my security clearance because my supervisor claims I have a mental disorder. I have stated that this claim was filed because of an on going EEO complaint. Although two doctors have signed off and stated that I am fit to return to full duty, my supervisors insist that I see a government doctor. I refused their request and as a result, I have lost my security clearance because of what they call an undermined mental condition. Since the reason for termination is not due to misconduct nor bad performance; do I have the option of doing a postponed retirement or deferred retirement? I would prefer a postponed retirement. Will I face penalties if I start collecting annuities from my TSP at 55 1/2 years old? Should I wait to for the dismissal to be processed, or should I retire before the dismissal? Can I collect a payout on all the sick leave and personal leave I have accumulated, and how soon can I collect it? If I take out a personal loan from my TSP to help me with the transition, will that adversely affect my ability to collect TSP annuities if I have not paid back the loan? I'm I eligible for a non-competitive position in the government? Considering that I am in the middle of a EEO complainte and have stated that this revoking of my security clearance is an effort to stop my claim, can I request to be kept on paid administrative leave until the EEO claim is settled.***** ***** (GS13-10)Phone:(###) ###-####Email:***@******.***Address:*****Unit 102Windsor Mill, MD 21244

Non-compete agreement in Massachusetts. I worked for a

Non-compete agreement in Massachusetts. I worked for a Delaware corporation for 1.6 years. In my NON-COMPETITION agreement, there is a paragraph that says:".... (2) years after the termination or cessation of such employment for any reason, the Employee will not directly or indirectly: (a) Engage in any business or enterprise (whether as owner, partner, officer, director, employee, consultant, investor, lender or otherwise, except as the holder of not more than 1% of the outstanding stock of a publicly-held company) that is competitive with the Company's business, including but not limited to any business or enterprise that develops, manufactures, markets, or sells any product or service that competes with any product or service developed, manufactured, marketed or sold, or planned to be developed, manufactured, marketed or sold, by the Company or any of its subsidiaries while the Employee was employed by the Company; or"""....Does it mean that how it sounds that I cannot even do algorithms (innovations) of my own if it competes with the algorithms they did? or I cannot work for any company that makes similar products?Is it legal to restrict people like that in Massachusetts?

I am in sales and signed a non compete agreement with my company about 6 years ago. I have just left my company and was told that I can not pursue my clients for a period of one year. Does my company (based in Alexandria Virginia and I am in Texas) have this leverage over who I choose to work for?

Im in Ohio and am considering an offer from a consultant

Im in Ohio and am considering an offer from a consultant firm that supports a major company at which I previously interned. I have a meeting with them this afternoon to accept/reject offer.My questions: is the attached non compete agreement (section 10) they are asking me to sign enforceable or is it too general? Does it prevent me from working from any other consultant in that specialty or just competitors to that consultant's list of supported companies for the 24 month period? Does it prevent me from taking employment with that major company I previously interned for during the period? At the supported division level or the entire corporation, let's say its some company as broad as GE? What should I ask for in my meeting with them today - like reduced term (12 months originally offered), specificity on restrictions – please give examples?10. NON-SOLICITATIONFor a period commencing from the date hereof and ending twenty-four (24) months after the termination of Employee's employment with the Company for any reason, whether voluntary or involuntary, with our without cause (the “Non-Competition Period”), Employee shall not, directly or indirectly, whether as an officer, director, proprietor, employee, partner, investor, consultant, advisor, independent contractor, agent or otherwise, except on behalf of the Company, contact, or be interested in any business which contacts any customer or client of the Company for purpose of soliciting work or business from that customer or client. This covenant not to solicit shall apply only to the solicitation of work or business that is of a similar nature to the work or business performed by the Company and which, therefore, is work or business in competition with the Company.(a) During the Non-Competition Period, Employee will not, directly or indirectly, whether an officer, director, proprietor, employee, partner, investor, consultant, advisor, independent contractor, agent or otherwise, take any action, or be interested in any business which takes any action, that will cause the termination of the business relationship between the Company and any client or customer of the Company or solicit, or be interested in any business which solicits, for employment or for engagement as an independent contractor any person employed by the Company.(b) During the Non-Competition Period, Employee will not, directly or indirectly, induce any employee or agent of the Company to leave the employ of the Company or sever any agency relationship with the Company and will not, directly or indirectly, employ or become associated with any person who was an employee or agent for the Company on the date of termination or within twelve (12) months prior to such date.

We are subcontractors to a large Systems Integrator and we

We are subcontractors to a large Systems Integrator and we did most of the job for them on a large project. Now they are taking over our positions and claiming that they are wanting to develop our skills with their organization, in the hope of competing with us during a rebid of the contract. We dont have explicit language in our subcontract preventing this. Do we have any recourse - such as they are reducing our competitiveness, or they are "bullying" a smaller comapny?
