I was previously working with a Mattress comp as an Asst Manager, however I resigned with immediate effect due to some personal issues. I have now joined a competitor at a higher position, however my previous company had added a clause that i cant work with a competitor for 2 years & are now threatening to file a law suit against me. what shall i do? I never new about the clause til date & no one in the company knows bout the same.Kindly advise.

I don't think it is legally valid clause. Pl. discuss with a known lawyer and find out. What ever it may be if you are not communicated and accepted then you are not party for that.
