Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How long have you worked there for? Please also provide the exact wording of the agreement or clause in question?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. If the agreement is offered to you at the end of your employment with them and there were never any contractual obligations covered by this from the start, then it is entirely up to you whether you sign it or not. Refusing to do so will mean that the employer will not be able to enforce any of the terms in it against you because there were never any contractual terms or obligations which were in place allowing them to do so. If you do sign it, make sure you are comfortable with whatever is in it and that you can adhere to it, but in general it should not prevent you from working elsewhere as long as the terms are not breached.
