Ok, now I'm a little confused so, for clarification, I'll stop speaking hypothetically so I can be clear on what you're saying.
1. They were a business coaching franchise, I made workshops about online marketing for their own practices
, then their business coaches (the franchisees) started hosting online marketing workshops for their own clients which was never the franchisor's intent. The franchisor was my employer. Now I want to host online marketing workshops of my own, which is not part of the franchisor's business model even if the franchisees are doing it (some of them, not all of them). So, if this is more clear, would my own workshops be violate a non-compete or no?
2. As above, if the franchisees contact me for services, they would be asking me do online marketing for them. Does this violate the non-compete? I did not contact them on social networks after my employment, they were connected to me on those social networks prior to me parting ways with my former employer.
3. If I want to proceed what type of lawyer would I need to consult with in this matter?
