Legal Answers
6 Questions Answered
Q. is this legal in a work place?
A: You may well have minimum wage and overtime claims (if you worked more than 40 hours in a week). You should consult with an attorney and consider filing a claim with Maryland Department of Labor.
Q. What are possible penalties if I accept a position with a recent client of my current employer?
A: An attorney would need to review the agreement to give you meaningful advice. I suggest you call a Maryland employment attorney for such a review and a consultation.
Q. Can a former employer prevent me from performing the same work for a competitor or on my own?
A: I would suggest you have the agreement reviewed by an employment lawyer. The lawyer should be able to give you a sense of the enforceability of the agreement. The wording of these agreements vary and the wording matters. Also, what you do at work is an important part of the analysis. I have written a few posts on this subject. See the following links:
