H1B Transfer : Non- Compete Agreement


Recommended Posts

I'm on H1B with Company A working at a 'client X'  place through Company B and I have signed a Non-Compete Agreement with Company B:
"Employee hereby agrees not to directly or indirectly compete with the business of the Company and its successors and assigns during the period of employment and for a period of xx Months following termination of employment and notwithstanding the cause or reason for termination"

Company B has different client's in same city and one of Company B's client -'Client Y' is interested in offering me a Full Time Job ( Note: I have not worked for this 'client Y' but the Client X and Client Y are sister companies)
will I be violating the Non-Compete Agreement?

My question is I signed a Non-Compete with Company B who is not my employer he is the prime vendor and I'm a contractor for them.


Is this non-Compete valid since the terms are for Employee and not for contractor's?

The wordings in agreement might help you (most unlikely) out of this situation. Get a labor attorney involved.
