Does anybody have any knowledge of these things?
I work for a commercial construction contractor as a salesman. Four years ago I signed a non-compete clause to not solicit any business within 100 miles for 2 years of our office. I was already employed for the company and they gave us a $500 bonus to sign the contract.
I decided to join a competitor in the same position about 4 months ago. My duties changed. at my former company which greatly affected by ability to make a commision. It has been about 4 months and my former employer is unaware that I a working for the competition. I have solicited a few customers that have given me business. I do expect them to find out within the 2 year window of my non-compete. I do have customer lists that I put together during my previous employment.
Is there anything wrong with what I have done? Any advice is appreciated as I am not really farmiliar with these contracts.
