Hi i signed an agreement/contract to work for a company na may clause that says im not allowed to work in the same industry, competitor or engage in similar work sa current work ko for 2 yrs after separation.

Paano po kapag hindi n ko happy sa work tapos gusto ko lumipat eh un lng naman ang alam kong work or expertise ko hindi ba tlga pde? Inaallow ba ito ng labor code? Or human rights?

Thank you very much....

you can read up on 'employment bond' and 'non-compete' clause.

my opinion is that a non-compete clause is enforceable, but the company has to go to court to do it. also, the cases i've seen were all for senior management

Hello Attorney!

I am a Virtual Assistant for 8 months and handled two clients on my ex company. I decided to resigned because I had to pursue my studies. When I resigned, my clients also decided to end their contract with my company too. My client offered me a partime job ( i don't call it a legal employment coz I don't sign anything or there is no contract between the two parties). It's just a matter of giving me some projects to do (like making flyers) and he'll pay for me that.

Ad now my ex company knew about it that I work with some projects of my ex clients and they remind me of my contract that I signed a "non-compete" agreement and I am not allowed to work with the same type of business, etc for 1 year. they are now threatening me that they'll file a case againts me.

My question is, i don't really work even part time with my ex clients coz they just gave me some little projects to do and they'll pay for me that and that ends the transaction. they just decided to do it because we wanted to help me with my allowance in school and I did not sign anything that I work or employed with them.

Can my ex company file against me? and will I be afraid of this case? Please need your advise coz I dont know what to do now.

Thanks in advance!
