Company threatening to sue
« on: December 14, 2014, 03:04:55 AM »

I joined a startup. The employers knew I was co-founder of a partnership firm. While working in Startup I released a Mobile Application in the name of my firm which initially the startup was using it to their own benefit.
After sometime when we released a new mobile application on similar lines under Startup's name they stopped using the first one.
I started utilizing that 1st application under my firm's name for myself.
Now suddenly my employers have objection that I should not be having an extra source of revenue and are saying they will file a legal complaint.
This startup company have few other employees as well who have their own parallel businesses running.

I would like to know if they have a legal standing or not and what should be right course of action for me.

Yes they can sue you if the company you are running is doing and dealing in the same product or services.

they have a case than, either you resign or get your self out of your company

It all depends on how your partnership agreement has been drafted. Unless one reads it, it is not possible to give advice. If your partnership deed expressly prohibits you from such enrichment then you can't and they can sue you for that. However if you also have rights over it and there is no prohibition then you can very well make money out of it. Moreover if it is not a registered firm, then chill out and continue with your business.
