I've had a copy of my contract e-mailed over to me and unfortunately there is a clause that states
"If the employee has interests outside the company which in the opinion of the company conflict with the interests of the company, he/she may be asked to leave the service of the company"
and this ...
"The company reserves the right to suspend the employee on full pay pending an investigation where the company has reasonable grounds to believe his/her continued employment by the company might be prejudicial to the company's clients and all others with whom the company deals or the company's business or other members of the staff"
Can I just have your opinion on whether this changes anything we spoke about yesterday. Obviously that first contract quote is the most pertinent and that just says I will be asked to leave. I don't know if the second quote really means anything.
I'm just worried about him launching some kind of civil case against me as he has somehow managed to obtain the names of some of my clients. I don't know how - I can only think that he has either had my private e-mail account hacked, or one of the tour operators I have booked my private clients with has broken data protection and given my boss information from my bookings.
As I said yesterday I haven't approached any clients of the company I work for. There are approximately 4 of my clients that I have previously /subsequently booked through my company, but these are my family and friends.
I look forward to hearing from you,
