company suing me for doing free lance work
« on: March 18, 2016, 12:37:02 AM »

I am working in a IT firm and recently I resigned from the firm. I asked them about buyout option for me because they have 2 months of notice period for employee leaving the company. They haven't replied yet about the resignation.

Some days back they called me into their office and asked me that whether I do other work outside of company work or not? I said yes I do and gave them details after lots of threatening from them I was mentally harassed and threatened. They now threatening me to file law suit against me for doing this free lance work. They have forcefully taken my all credentials and details from me for those free lance work. Even they threatened me to give bad reviews to my new employer if I don't give them details.

Can someone here help me how I should act here?

If they are physically/ mentally threatening you, you can file a complaint before the police station.

Since you have already submitted your resignation, it is now up to the company either to accept or reject your resignation. But they need to act first.

Unless, they file a law suit against you, chances of which is less than 1%, right now no more legal advice cannot be given.
