I was let go from my job two weeks ago. I was told my team was under investigation and asked my install manager and my install coordinator to go on paid leave for a week while they look into this. They also asked me to come and I told them I have no idea what you are talking about. . They said they where having some questions about PO that I don’t even write. I asked them if I was on paid leave and they satold d no just go home and work. I turned in another half million dollars in revenue that week. The company pays one month behind on commissions. I was let go mid June and was suppose to collect my 30K commission check that was billed out in May this past Friday. The company referred sed to pay me and walked me out the door. I also have about four million dollars of revenue on the books with signed contracts. If I was to still work there they would owe me roughly 275k over the next few months. I was also told that I can’t get a job in North America. I’m really in a bad spot because this is all I have done for 22 years. I was in sells at least 10 years before I worked for this company.
A non-compete agreement is a contract. To get legitimate answers to any contract question, you will have to take the contract to an employment law attorney and have it reviewed.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
As detailed above, it will depend on the language of your employment agreement. You should have an attorney review it to get an answer.
This answer does not constitute legal advice and you should contact an attorney to confirm or research further any statements made in this answer. Any statements of fact or law I have made in this answer pertain solely to New York State and should not be relied upon in any way in any other jurisdiction.
