Re: New employer wants me to start before end of current contract

Thank you all for sharing your wisdom!

I will make sure that my contracts don't overlap. I don't want to commit fraud and have issues with AHV, insurance, or get into breach of contract sh*t.

First option is of course status-quo. I will start 1-Sep according to the new contract I already signed. If new company insist on 1-Aug then I will negotiate:
(a) holidays -> cash or credit as holiday
(b) shares -> cash or equivalent shares
I will shoot for 100% but I'm willing to negotiate.

Once I get this into writing then I will talk to current company and ask them to release me earlier. They don't need to pay me for Aug and I forfeit the shares. Its a win-win for them so I'm confident they will agree.
