Re: Non competition agreement

During the employment under this MNC, I need to sign a non-competition agreement that specified a restricted period of 24 months (from end of employment regardless of the reason), where I can't be employed direct / indirectly with a competitor. I was offered VSS recently and was asked to sign the same document again. Due to the nature of my job, it's very unlikely that I'm able to secure a job non related to the current.

Questions is can I "not sign" the above agreement again, since I need to find a new job as the only bread winner in the family. Any consequences if I do not sign it and got an job offer from a competitor.

I don't know what position you are holding and what sort of trade secrets or vital information you possess in the company. Anyway, I think you better show the contract to a lawyer and seek legal advice as to the legality of that non-competition clause.

I'm not holding any senior position, just a regular sales exec. Would labour office be able to help on this matter.

In that case, you may as well consult the Legal Aids Bureau (Biro Bantuan Guaman) for some free legal advice.That is a government department. Show them your contract. The Labour Department may not be able to help in such a matter.
