My employer is threatening to sue me for taking clients: what should I do?

If your employer is threatening to sue you for taking clients, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible. Here are some steps you can take:

  1. Review Your Employment Contract: Review your employment contract to determine if there are any clauses related to client solicitation or non-compete agreements. If there are, you may need to abide by those terms or risk legal action.
  2. Document the Situation: Keep a record of all communications and interactions with your employer related to the client issue. This includes emails, text messages, and any other forms of communication.
  3. Seek Legal Advice: Consult with a lawyer who specializes in employment law. They can provide you with legal advice on your situation and advise you on how to proceed. A lawyer can also represent you if the situation escalates.
  4. Consider Negotiation: If your employer is willing to negotiate, you may be able to come to a settlement that is mutually acceptable. Your lawyer can help you with the negotiation process and ensure that your interests are protected.
  5. Be Prepared to Defend Yourself: If your employer does decide to sue you, you will need to be prepared to defend yourself in court. Your lawyer can help you prepare your case and represent you in court.

Remember, taking clients from a previous employer can be a complex legal issue, and the outcome can vary depending on the specifics of your situation. It is important to seek legal advice and guidance to protect your interests and ensure that you are following the appropriate legal procedures.
