Sounds like he made a decision and so did you. Hope he makes it. Ever heard of employees signing a waiver or agreement against bidding on or trying to take customers for a certain period of time. I have a friend that moonlights with a snow plow and he said that guy made him sign one??? I will try and get a copy of this and make it avaiable for anyone whos wants to see it. It might only be for "sub-contracting" type of work....not sure.
