If you are considering leaving your position, you must provide reasonable notice of your resignation or face being sued for damages. By way of example, in a recent case, ( RBC Dominion Securities) in Cranbrook, British Columbia, a large group of employees left their position and took their client lists and financial records to Merrill Lynch and began soliciting business away from RBC. While RBC was unsuccessful in arguing that they had competed unfairly, it was able to recover some damages because the brokers had resigned without advance notice.
