i have recently started my own corporation, i never signed a non-compete, my previous employer owes me 350,000.00 in commissions due, before i left my previous employer, i had already filed for my new corporation and started writing buisness for myself. i have taken one on my previous employers accounts, can he come back and take legal actions and sue for unspecified damages? and can i take legal action against him for my 350,000.00 dollars.



would also like to know

I would also like this question answered. I have not signed a non-compete contract. I know the owner has one with some of the employees, but I never signed. Can she come after me if I leave and solicit the client list I have built?


I too am interested in the answer.

I believe that non-compete clauses are non-binding in some states. Currently, I live in California (where I think they are non-binding). However, the contract I have in front of me to sign specifies New York law. Would a non-compete clause that says I cannot perform similar work for 12 months after leaving the company be valid?

What if I'm an independent contractor? (And yes, they want independent contractors to sign a non-compete.)
