"As a previous Spa Director and now an owner of my own massage therapy center I understand why they would want you to sign contract stating you won't contact the clientele you've worked on. However, it's unethical for them to ask you…"

"When you stop working there, you have exited. What can they do if you don't sign it? Nothing. If they wanted you to sign something of that nature, they should have made it a condition of employment. Now it's too late."

Vivian replied to April L. Bessette's discussion Has anyone heard of an "exit form" when leaving a business?
"I see no reason for you to sign it or why you would in any way be obligated to sign it. I think a no competition agreement is a good and fair thing to do. But the time to do that is before you begin the job. It kind of reminds me of a friend of…"

Has anyone heard of an "exit form" when leaving a business?

I have decided to leave my current job at a chiropractic clinic and my last day is Friday. Today, my boss handed me an "exit" form that she wanted me to sign, stating my client's files are property of the clinics, which I agree with...however, it also stated I am not allowed to contact any of my client's to inform them where I will be working in the future via email, mail, or by phone. I did not sign it, and told her I was going to talk to a lawyer before I sign anything. My mother-in-law is…See More

Cost for Corporate Chair Massages/My experience with EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week

Hello Everyone, During the week of EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week, I participated by providing Free chair massages for client's at the clinic which I am currently employed, and for local businesses. I had considered charging clients $1/minute then donate all the proceeds to a charity, but then I thought since it was my first time participating in the event I should do it complementary for a few reasons. With the economy these days it is a little difficult for some people to pay for this…See More

Hi April.
You still need help uploading pic? Click on camera icon you see in bar at top. Click on browse. Go to file you have picture in on your computer (actually step 1 is have it on your computer). Highlight, say add and it will do the rest. Make sure picture is not too big or it won't show up. Write back if you need more help!
