I've received a job offer from a former client with very nice terms, a decent pay check, just all around a great job with people I know and get along with.
Coupled with the fact that I may not be very suited to my current job (consultancy) as opposed to what they're offering (full time business as usual).
But I've come across a hindrance.
Upon reviewing my paperwork, I noticed that I do not have a specific document I signed.
When I was working for this customer, I had to sign a do-not-compete clause with a different company. To put matters into perspective I'll explain the situation a bit.
- I am employed at nice small consultancy firm
- Customer was looking for a consultant that matched my skill-set
- Bodyshop is a provider of consultants for Customer
- Nice small consultancy firm outsourced me through bodyshop to Customer
- I signed a do not compete clause between nice small consultancy firm and bodyshop
- Customer stopped all contracts with bodyshop because of some bad experiences
- Customer opened up some job postings for employees to replace the consultants that were let go
Now I never received a copy of this do not compete clause, I signed it, and I think both company's have a copy, but I don't.
How would I go about obtaining a copy?
Am I just utterly screwed if I sign something now?
