No , I am not still employed by the old company, my employment ended on the transfer date
HI again Alex
yes , I have had 2 letters from the new companys solicitors
basically what I am doing and have done since leaving the old company
is approach clients for business . I accept that my old company had a covenant written into my contract of employment stating that I could not contact or solicit any customers within 6 months of final day of employment. surely as I objected to the transfer , my contract cannot pass to the incoming company as I was never employed by them as I objected to the transfer
They are saying that I am in blatant breach of contact . The new company has obviously purchased the clients belonging to the old company . They have said that I am not allowed to approach these customers as they are now their customers
They have said they MAY exercise their right to pursue me for damages
as a result of my business activities being in direct competition with them.
ALL correspondence has come from the new companys solicitors , not the old company i.e my previous employer.
The latest letter outlined protocol action as to the direction of events which may now take place
You have been really helpful ,I have no choice but to rate your service as excellent. In fact if there was an option to rate higher than that, you would definitely qualify !!!!
As you suggested , a letter from a solicitor is being dafted and sent .
