Query related to joining client company

Recommended Posts

I am working for consultancy firm and working at client location. My client is willing to hire me but there is a clause between my employer and client that they cannot hire me. I am working with this client for more than a year on my employer payroll but I have not signed any documents like NDA, Non compete etc. Can I join my client on their payroll? I got my GC from my current employer.  Does that bring any restriction? Can they take any legal actions for me joining the client? If yes, how can I protect myself from any legal issues.

If the clause is not between you and your employer then you might be fine. If it is between your employer and client then your employer might go after client.

In this case of you having GC, if you have already past 180 days of filing I-485, you can safely change your employer. As long as relationship with employer are good, I don't think it would be a cause of concern or fear of whether there will be legal issues. In your case, you haven't signed any documents which is a big plus.

Thank you so much for replies. Is there any other document i should check other than NDA and non compete? 

Your offer letter and contract.
