    You possibly may have a viable legal claim. I would need more information to fully assess that possibility. Information I would need includes the last time you received text mssges from him, if u saved the txt mssgs, and the number of employees that work at his company. Please provide that info. and then I can more fully respond. Thank you. sl sl@joblaws.net www.joblaws.net

    Not suprisingly, there is no easy answer. You should consult with a lawyer experienced in employment law and non-compete matters. Much depends on the specific facts, including your job duties, nature of employer's business, all facts and circumstances surrounding your departure, and the State law which governs. You also may have viable claims to assert against the employer that may provide you with leverage to avoid the non-compete. steve lebau

  6. Do I have a case?

    Yes, you should get paid for the day you worked, from the facts you have provided. Without a lawyer you can and should consider promptly contacting the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, see http://www.dllr.state.md.us/labor/wages/. I am not sure you want to retain a lawyer yet, because of the limited amount you are owed. If the Maryland agency cannot promptly resolve your matter, then you should feel free to contact my office. sl sl@joblaws.net www.joblaws.net

    You should definitely consult with a lawyer well versed on about the enforceability of the non-compete. Non-competes are NOT per se unenforceable under Maryland law. steve lebau sl@joblaws.net www.joblaws.net

    Your question poses many issues and questions. For example, do u believe u still are disabled? If you do return to work, will the hurt your LTD claim. You really should consult with an employment/disability lawyer. The lawyer needs to review the LTD policy, your claim and know more about your employer. steve lebau www.joblaws.net sl@joblaws.net
