Question posted in the General Law category relating to Western Cape
Hello, on 30th March 2021 I left my employment of 13 years.. To start my own business. A few of the customers from my previous employment have called me to ask them to do work for them. which I have. my former employer has found out and he is very cross and says I may not do work for his customers even if they find my number and call me. there is nothing in my contract about constraint of trade if I was to leave. My former employer has also threatened me and said he will make my family's life a misery. Can I please send you my former work contract so you can check it out? Can he verbally tell me what to do with out me agreeing to it?

Answer to the Question
I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
If you have signed a restraint of trade clause in your employment agreement, then your previous employer might have a point.
But if you didn't, then why should you listen to their demands?!? You don't need to ...
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
