Re: I need some ideas

Wow...you guys are full of ideas...glad I posted this message here. I knew from reading all these good posts here for a year that I'd get some great advice and its totally appreciated. I'm just wondering from this point that if I invest 10g into a good lawyer...what's my return....we're talking about a paycheck worth $867.00 after tax, do you think the return is worth the investment, is that 8.6% return worth it?...I'd say its worth it (I do have the money to throw out there, but it comes from my retirement fund) plus I have to throw in another 10% for satisfaction of popping this guy's a$$.

I will say this, the job that I took after quitting this guy has been a dream come true, I've been thinking of retiring in just a few more years, but now I'm leaning more towards staying out there and building my nest egg up even more, I have fell in love with this new job...a dream come true for me as I am used to a totally different scenario at work than what I'm exposed to now.

I'm wondering now about the liability of knowing what I know about this guy and if I really should report it to the appropiate authorities...I got written documentation as I was a field super, I kept detailed logs, both business and personal of what went on, and we all know those that have the most paper work wins the arguments. I wish John Galt was a lawyer...I'd hire him to get him as he strikes me as worse than a bull dog with aids and harder to sling off than a yo-yo.

Keep posting, Jack. Before long you'll be wearing underwear made of used dryer sheets.

I was thinking that the Ku Klux Klan could have saved a
bunch of bedding if they had made their costumes out of
used dryer sheets. Guess they "hung" their laundry

Re: I need some ideas

Definitely not legal advice, just things I've noted in my own no-compete studies....courts seem to frown upon no-competes signed after employment, everyone of similar position must sign the same no-compete, companies must prove that employee has significant knowledge/expertise that could do company harm in competition and clauses cannot be ridiculous in time and/or distance. Just do a little "no compete" search on the net and start clicking.

Re: I need some ideas

I bear good tidings....After a half dozen faxes, several phone calls and threats of lawsuits (1 copy of the state stautes), the guy got even and sent my wife my check..... I wonder if that's legal , now management has my money and I have to wait til the next annual board meeting to re-negotiate my contract!

Jack

Thanks for all the advice
