Atlanta, GA asked in Business Law, Employment Law and Contracts for Georgia

Q: How can I confirm that every contract entered into between a previous employer and I is no longer in effect?

I am Georgia. In 2016 I joined a company, Exide, with a humongous amount of stuff that I signed during the hiring process. I quit in January 2017, but now I am concerned that there is still some legal arrangement between that firm and I. I do not have a copy of the stuff that I signed, but I am concerned that it may have contained clauses totally unrelated to what was discussed during the hiring process.

How can I obtain a copy of the complete legal documents between Exide and I?

A: You should be able to simply reach out to your former employer and ask them to send you copy of your employment contract(s). Once you receive your copy, have it reviewed by a good business/employment law attorney to address if there are any lingering noncompete, non-solicitation clauses to which you may be bound contractually bound.
