I have recently resigned from a casual hairdressing job. I had never signed any contract whilst I was there. I am now starting my own salon from home and have messaged a few clients that where mine from work and I was their only stylist and informed them that I was now working from home. I have now received a letter from my old bosses solicitor saying accusing me of steeling clients details and that I have to stop approaching clients from their salon. I don’t understand how they can say this as I haven’t ever signed anything saying I can not obtain clients when I leave. Also as part of my job I could access their appointment book and computer with client details on it. Therefore how can they say I was doing the wrong thing. Just want to know if I’m in trouble here.
