Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Has your current employer agreed to permit you to work for the vendor? Would you be working as an employee or independent contractor? Please paste the language of the document you would like me to review here. Please remember that we are not permitted to provide legal advice through this forum though, but only legal information and feedback.
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
Hello Tina, Thanks for responding to my query. Please note that:
1. I have not spoken to my current employer yet and i am doing my due dilligence before taking any step.
2. I will be working as an employee of the new vendor. However i have the option of joining new vendor as an independent contractor as well.
3. I have the contract letter in the form of .pdf. Can i send you the entire file for your review. I do not see an option to attach files here.
Tina, the http://pastelink.me/ does not work in Internet Explorer, i have no other browser. Can i share the document with you by sending it to some email id..?
The answers i am looking for are:
1. Does the non-compete cluase restrict me from joining another vendor and working for the same client.
2. Does the clause abide by US Labor law..?
In other words, how strong is the non-compete in my offer letter..
sure, let me contact customer service.
I have just sent it to the customer support, it should be coming your way now. Just a few more facts:
1. I was hired by this company in India and sent to USA on deputation.
2. I came here on H1B and now i have a Green Card.
3. The Company "Satyam" that has issued me the offer letter was bought by another company and now it's not called Satyam anymore, it's called "Tech Mahindra"
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
Thanks for your response Tina.
I think i did not mention it, i am planning to submit my resignation to "Satyam". After serving 2 weeks of notice period from the date of submitting resignation, i am free to join another employer. I am on Green Card (permanent resident), not on a work visa.
After these 2 weeks only i will join another company and keep working for the same client.
This is how i will represent the scenario:
Working for Company "A (Satyam)". Through company "A" working for client "C". Planning to resign from Company "A" and join compny "B". Through company "B" keep working for the same client "C".
do you see the contract very strong to restrict me from doing so.
once again, that a lot for your time..!
you mean i should get the consent in writing from Company "A" that i can work for Client "C" through company "B"..?
oh yes..they are ready..i mean company "C" is ready to write me an offer...
I though i need to get a consent from my current employer "A" and that might be tough..!!
That helps.. you rock.!!
Thanks very much..!!
