Hi, I am an independent sales agent. I have worked as a commission only agent for 4 years with this company and have no employment contract. The 'boss' has reduced my % commission twice without my consent as he feels it is his right to do so and he does not have to negotiate; I just have to accept it. I am now looking to leave and have been offered a post with a competitor, whom he hates, but who are actually quite good. Am I legally able to leave this role to work for a competitor without any legal hassle? The current 'boss' threatens everyone that they can't work for the competitor or he will sue them. Can he actually do that under employment law? I feel that he can't if you are an independent agent. I'm in a tricky situation and would appreciate your help. Thank you.
