Customer Question
I an currently working...

I an currently working with company A which has a client company B. Now there is non solicitation agreement between A and B which prohibits employee solicitation but an employee can respond to any public job posting. I applied to company B through their website and got the job. Now my current employer is threatening me that it us technically not right and is not accepting my resignation mail.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

New Jersey

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

At will

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

And I have not signed any contract. It's only between A and B
