Hello all, not sure if this is the right place to post, so apologies if it isn't. I've just got my date for phase 1, sort of a last minute thing and I start in a weeks time. I told my boss at work and he told me I can't go because I have signed a contract stating that I must give a minimum of 4 weeks notice before I leave. It also states in the contract, that during my employment i will not engage in or be interested in any other business or occupation whatsoever! I know am an idiot for signing it, but I had no choice at the time if i wanted the job. If for example I just handed in my letter of resignation and went in the army, would they be able to drag me out and take me to court? Everyones telling me its no big deal, and the company are just trying to scare me out of leaving them. The thing that annoys me is the fact the contract I have signed is for a 12 month probationary period, and they can sack me at any time! I know you guys are not solicitors, but would like to know your views on this. Shall I just go for it? Thanks.
