But in 99% of cases, what would actually happen if an employee left a company to join another one and declined to work their notice period? I imagine nothing?
Probably depends on your level. Some contracts have clauses saying you can’t work for a competitor for X weeks/months after leaving your current job, so if you walked out on one company and went straight to a competitor, I reckon your old employer could take you to court.
But in most cases, you’re probably right.
