Hello, I am happy to assist.
If you have a non compete agreement that says you can't be hired by a client, the employer can absolutely allow you to take that position, if it is done in writing. A release form would be great, or really anything in writing saying that they no longer hold you to that requirement. Make sure it is signed by the right person, whoever signed the original contract.
Let me know if you have any questions. Otherwise best of luck.
If the employer is willing to release you from that agreement, it doesn't matter if you are leaving early. If they don't release you from it, then you would be leaving early and would be subject to whatever terms are in that agreement regarding leaving before the end of the contract.
You are welcome.
