    Cant you justify in another way that you worked for the company through w2 forms or something? That cant only rely on someones signature can they? Maybe thats how they roll in Texas?

    How about another tech that you used to work with ?

    It takes three people to do anything around here. Two do the work, one explains to the crowd of people who showed up when they seen smoke and flames.

    Is it any wonder that you want to go into business for yourself having worked for someone who wants to hold you down? Does he feel threatened? Sour grapes because you want to give it a go on your own?

    One letter from a lawyer threatening legal action should do it. Shouldn't cost you more than three hundred dollars.

    Boy that just burns my arse. Over the years I've had employees come to me wanting to go into their own business. Not only did I endorse the necessary paperwork, but offered to help them (free business coaching) to get them going. And, have a small going away and best of luck party for them.

    In addition to that, the understanding that if things didn't work out, the door would be open for them to come back to work for us.

    Some of my best employees are people who gave business a shot and discovered it wasn’t for them.

    Best of luck to you in your new venture.

    thanks yall helped alot. Yea they always told me their biggest fear was i would own a company and be their biggest competitor. I talked to my collage teacher who ive helped alot over the past few years and he is going to try to endorse the paperwork needed.As far as a lawer making my previous emplorer sign it will not happen . ive been told by TDLR that there is no law that says they have to in Texas. I will let yall know how it works.

    There dosen't have to be a law that says he has to sign it for you to sue him. He's impeding your ability to make a living. In many states that is a viable defense.

    Of course if getting your college teacher to endorse it will be easier, quicker and cheaper.

    Good Luck

    I believe the term is 'torturous interference with a business relationship'.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    Really its just a tactic, you have to be able to show losses and that is the problem. If the contractor does not want to sign a release etc. Take it as a complement and move on.
    If you plan on starting your own business you are going to have enough on your plate without thinking negative out of the box.
