Customer Question

Hi, I am employed by a company and signed a do not compete. I however spoke to one of the owners and was given the ok to do work on the side. Now they are propably going to fire me and the owner I spoke to is making like our conversation was misinterpreted and doesnt matter because they have my signature on a do not compete. What I am wondering is if I can still do my work after leaving them as I am not stealing their customers, but they say I am operating in their territory and can not do that. I can provide pics of the document if that helps

Yes, please provide those in PDF format. That is the only one that will open on the screen without downloading. I'll take a look at it but I can warn you, Texas has extremely employer friendly laws.
