I worked for a company for 3.6 years and resigned from that company and served official 3 months notice period. I am working on software tool in my current company which is same as previous company but the client and project is different. Now my previous company is saying as you are working on same tool, you have breached the competancy rule and we will not issue experience letter. The rule is as follows
'You will not, whether on your own behalf or on behalf of any other person, firm, Company or organization, without prior written consent of the Company, during your employment with the Company and for a period of One year from the date of termination of your employment, (a) directly or indirectly, engage in, as an employee, associate, consultant, proprietor, partner, director or otherwise, or have any ownership interest in, or participate in any business of a kind dealt in, produced, marketed or sold by the Company in the ordinary course of business (b) directly or indirectly, engage in, as an employee, associate, consultant, proprietor, partner, director or otherwise, or have any ownership interest in, or participate in any business with any person, firm, Company, or organization who have been customers of the Company during your employment with the Company or who is a prospective customer of the Company with whom the Company is in negotiations at the time of termination of your employment The parties acknowledge that these obligations are essential to the overall agreement between the parties hereto and that it is in pursuance of the mutual benefits of the parties under this Agreement.”
I need help to figure out what can I do in this situation.
