We had sub contracted work out to a contract employee who worked directly for our client in Hawaii. The contracted person then violated her contract and began working for the client who is also our competitor. The client then refused payment until he recieves a signed contract which we did not agree to. Services were already rendered before he even sent us the adjusted contract. He owes a total of $2k which he will not send in unless he gets the signed contract which we refuse to sign as we did not agree to his adjustments yet the service had already been provided. Can we just send him to collections? If we need to take him to court will we have to go to Hawaii to do so? Since the amount is under 5k small claims court will be used. All we have as proof of this service that we provided is the emails that have been sent back and forth and the work order form submitted by the contracted employee that we placed in the position. Do we have any rights as to the matter of the employee working directly for our competitor after signing a non-compete agreement?

Thank you for your help.

Darius

in reply to firing her

She no longer works for our company and after her position was terminated they continued to work together through our companies email account. This was recorded. I guess my question here is do we have grounds to take them to small claims and if so would we have to do so in Washington? Thank you for your reply Cat.
