You have my sympathy Kev, but I can understand your old employer.
I believe you when you say that you have no intentions of contacting their customers but you must realise that you are in a minority there, and the potential damage to their business, in similar circumstances to yours can be very high. It’s not just our trade, I see cases every week of leasing company reps, vinyl reps etc etc, changing jobs and trying to take their existing customers with them.
For your old company it’s not a risk worth taking. Their prime concern must be firstly to their own business and secondly to the job security of their other staff. The cost of a months wages can be very cheap insurance.
So, what are your plans for the future?
