Hello everyone, thanks in advance!
I work for a big FMCG in an entry-level position. I recently got an offer from a consulting company (in another country), offering me to start working in June. Since June is so far away, I still didn't tell anyone at the current company about my offer (I plan on telling them 1 month before leaving, been here only 3 months).
Now I've been sent a Contract of Employment from the consulting company asking me to sign it and start working in June.
My only concern is this part of my current contract: The employee can't, without the consent of the Company and during the duration of the contract, work in additional work or be contracted to another company or with another employer (specially if a result would be unfair competition).
So am I allowed to sign the contract with the consulting company? Am I contracted to another company if I sign the contract now, even though I start working in June? How is this problem usually solved?
