I may have copies of the documents in my drawer at work, and if I don't, I will ask HR for them. I am just asking the question about HR because I thought people on this forum may have heard some stories about dealing with HR and they may have some insight. This issue just came up an hour ago and I can't get my papers until at least tomorrow, unfortunately.
I got this job 4 years ago and it was my first job out of college so I cannot remember if I signed an NDA or non-compete. I wasn't picky about what terms the employer wanted to hire me on, but I do know I wouldn't have signed anything that was completely unreasonable.
I am not sure how searching for a new job makes me a disloyal employee. I am not giving Company B any information or doing any work for them. In fact, I am on here asking the question to make sure I don't do anything wrong against my current company. I need to get back to Company B and tell them whether I can do it or not.
Yes, they could "USE" me. However, given the circumstances and the people involved, I am pretty confident that is not the case; I am willing to take that risk. I feel that this is also irrelevant to my question. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I am just looking for some insight into whether I should be worried about this at all or not. I am not a lawyer or familiar with these laws at all or even the ethics of any of this. If you are able to help with my question if I provide more information, I am happy to do so. I just need to know what you need. I will get copies of the documents tomorrow or Monday.
