Good Evening, I have had a breach of contract letter come through to me this afternoon from my previous employer, where they have issued a cease and desist for contacting their customers and suppliers, however on their website for the past week they have been directing support and further information enquiries directly to my new job email address and my personal email address, it was live when the scanned letter was sent.
Some background info:
The company I was previously employed at was selling the products at the company that I now work for, their biggest partner which subsequently provides 60% of their turnover has decided to purchase the product elsewhere, this has been on the cards for sometime now, as they have been asking to purchase elsewhere for at least 1 year, my new company has records for this, I have only been at the new company, their supplier for 1 month. The account however was mine until 2 months before I left the company, one of the reasons for leaving.
My ex employer has blamed me for the loss of their business as well as making libelious and defamatory comments to third parties, hence the subsequent cease and desist notice. My new company terminated our partnership with them today, due to severly overdue debts, and libelious comments.
My ex-employee owes a lot of money to my new employer.
My ex-employer is based in Jersey, but most UK regulations stand.
