Legal Question

Asked on: 8/29/07, 7:16 pm

contract violation

I worked for a spa for 2.5 years and

was told that I had to sign a contract

after being there for 2 years. I was

told that if I didn't sign the contract I

would not see new clients. In this

industry that is my livelyhood. I

signed the contract which stated

that I could not leave to work at

another spa within 5 miles and if I

did leave I could not defeer from the

business.

I decided to leave after I was charged

an amount of money per service that

I did without knowledge of the

charge and also my sister who

worked there with me was falsely

accused and fired for stealing. I

attempted to stay but because of

constant gossip and the massive loss

of money from my check.

I did contact clients to let them know

that I was leaving and how to

contact me but I did not insist that

they follow me to my new work.

I recently recieved a letter from my

former employer that stated that he

may take legal action for my leaving

and contacting clients.

There are times in the contract that

he has violated terms. I also did

contact clients which can be

manipulated into a violation.

Any suggestions on how to handle

the situation and what I can do if it

does go to court?
