Re: Being Sue By Ex Company Because Of Resign And Accept Better Offer From Other Company
I am a fresh gradute back then and I found a job in XXX company. I had been work with XXX company for 3 years.. On the 3rd year,the company force us to sign agreement..
The agreement content :
1. We can do any other job or business.
2. We cant work with competitor after we resign.
3. We cant work in the same field for 1 year after we resign.
4.Contract validity until ??? (Forever)
I had signed the contract.The reason why I sign is because i am in need of salary money and bonus money for CNY celebration.If we didnt sign the contract,we cant get our salary and bonus.On that time just few days before CNY..So we have no choice but had to sign the contract.
Now my ex-company sued me because I am joining other company which previously are my ex-company supplier but now become competitor.But the time I join ,they still purchase item from my current company.
Am I consider wrong in this matters?
Do Malaysia labour law have this kind of law that don't permit us as a skilled worker in related field to work in the same field even after we resign from previous company that doing the same field?
If that so,it is very unfair to us because what we study at college,we use the knowledge in our work.. Then suddenly ask us to do other job that we dont have any skilled in it,how we going to survive during that 1 year time?
Please anyone with experience like this before or anyone know more on labour law advise me on this issue..
Please help.. May GOD bless you for your kindness..
