I'm trying to find the non compete clause in my current contract however I haven't found any term or title that mentioned "Wettbewerbsverbot" or "Non Competing Clause".
I read online that "A non-compete clause for employees must be agreed in writing in the employment contract and signed by both parties." I'm not sure about the validity of this statement.
What does that mean for me in terms of job switch?
Can I work for a company that's in the same market or is a competitor after resigning from my current job?
If yes, what things I need to look out for?
If no, what can I do if I've an offer from a competing company?
Please share your experience and knowledge in this matter.
PS: I did find the following clause however I'm not sure if it's non competing agreement?
Der Arbeitnehmer verpflichtet sich, während der Dauer des Arbeitsverhältnisses und auch nach dem Ausscheiden, über alle Betriebs- und Geschäftsgeheimnisse Stillschweigen zu bewahren.
