Iv'e been with the company since the 19/07/2013
as far as I know there isn't anything stated in the contract saying I'm unable to work anywhere else - I will re-read it when I get back home and let you know.
There also isn't anything regarding non disclosure in the contract either
Hi Ben, sorry for the delay,
I have just re-read the contract and there isn't anything that states I cannot work anywhere else whilst still employed.
It's a pretty basic contract.
Good morning Ben,
You gave me some advice a couple of weeks ago regarding Gardening Leave.
I am currently on gardening leave with the company I am currently at, working out my notice period of 3 months.
I resigned on the 13th May and my notice period finishes on teh 13th August.
My question is as follows: I am on a basic + commission (paid quarterly in arrears) salary.
I received a letter from my company confirming that I am put on gardening leave and can't work for anyone else etc. and they have said they will only pay me my commission up to the date of my resignation, being 13th May.
I have told the company on numerous occasions that I will work my notice period, but they don't want me in the office as it's a conflict of interests as I am going to be working for an opposition company.
Surely I am entitled to any commission generated from any of my clients for the full duration of my notice period, regardless of whether I am on gardening leave?
I just worry that they are going to 'screw' me out of money that is owed to me.
If I need to pay additional fees for this new question, please let me know and I will be more than happy to do so.
Cool, will do that when I get back home. Cheers Stuart
