Just for reconfirmation.
I have signed the Emploment Agreement in May 2012.
I have resigned the company in Feb 2013 and relieved on March 1.I am working with Client through different employer/agency from today.
The Employer I resigned called me and cautioned I can not work for the same client.
Another Important thing the client is located in Illinois and I am working in Illinois.
But as per Governing Law in agreement the conditions should come under CA Laws right?.
As Non-Compete is void under California Business and Professions Code Section 16600, I need not worry about the below condition though I had signed in May 2012.
8. ADDITIONAL SERVICES FOR CLIENT
Employee understands that Employer has agreed to pay a portion of the Employee’s compensation in exchange for Employee’s agreement to, and abiding by, this paragraph during the term of the Employee’s relationship with Employer and for six (6) months immediately thereafter. Employee understands that he/she will not perform services for Client directly or indirectly unless the client was introduced to the Employer by the Employee.
17. GOVERNING LAW
The laws of the state of California shall govern this Agreement. Any litigation in connection herewith shall be brought, consistent within the state or federal courts of the state of California and both parties hereby consent to such courts’ exercise of personal jurisdiction over them.
Please let me know can I work with client (located in IL) immediately after my termination with employer that I signed the above condition in May 2012 on Employment agreement?
Your response and review will help me alot.
