My question involves business law in the state of: NY
Hey there folks,
Quick question. I was let go from/left my job today, but I'm starting my own company. I know for a fact that about 4 other employees are interested in working with me since I'd talked with them about what I was working on. Here's the thing, I signed a NonSolicit when I started and again in the severance agreement.
My questions are:
• What is the worst case scenario if I knowingly violate it and just hire them anyway and the previous company takes legal action?
• What are the possible loopholes? For example, I know that many employees are very unhappy at the company (I'm the 4th one to leave in 2 months) and are on their way out & looking for other work anyway. Could they testify to have left of their own volition?
