I used to work together with my wife in the same company. The company is a local sales company having 3 business divisions. I used to belong to the Industrial Division heading one of its technical teams while my wife is a sales manager for the Medical Division.
I resigned from the company last month, August 2014, and moved to another local company dealing with systems integration using a competing brand that my previous company is distributing.
After one week of my resignation, the owner talked to my wife and was asking her to leave the company as he claims that I am a direct competitor and that my wife's presence is not healthy and sighting loss of trust and confidence. However, the owner is not putting up any letter of dismissal to my wife yet expects my wife to leave the company by September 17.
In this case, we would like to ask the following:
1. Is there basis of this lost of trust and confidence whereas my wife is on the medical division while my old post was in their industrial division?
2. Can we question the dismissal because the company is not issuing a dismissal letter but just verbally advised?
I hope you can help us on this problem of ours. Thank you.
