Good afternoon Michael,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
You asked: Can an independant contractor be sued for applying his skills at other companies? Yes, but only if that independent contractor has a non-compete agreement as part of their contract with the company they have the existing relationship with.
So if company A hires you to work for them as an independent contractor and you don't sign a non-compete agreement with A, then you are free to also go to work for company B.

When I offer a phone call it does not include the review of documents. I am willing to call you, and if you want you can type the clause you think is a non-compete clause here, and we can discuss it on the phone.
