I have not signed a non-compete contract, or any non-disclosure agreements.
When you say "work contracts" what do you mean? If you are wanting to do some work for another employer this would generally be ok so long as you didn't sign a non-compete agreement with your current employer.
Are you deemed an employee of both companies? Does each company know of this activity? Are there potential conflicts of interest, that you can perceive? Are the jobs identical? Do the 2 jobs required usage of "each company's" protected information. Even though you have no non-compete with each, there are trade secrets and protected information owned by each company. Under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, enacted in most states, you can be stopped (enjoined) from such dual activity, if proven to harm an employer. Most importantly, if adequately proven, you can be made to pay actual attorneys fees and legal costs for the pursuit of such action by a disgruntled employer. In Michigan, this act is known as the Michigan Uniform Trade Secrets Act, MCL 445.1901 et seq.
