I am currently working for a client through a vendor, and client has decided not to extend contract to Vendor
This is the relationship
Client asked me if I can work with them through a new vendor and I said yes but my employer has a SUB-CONTRACTOR AGREEMENT with the old vendor so I have joined a new employer and started working with same client. But now old vendor sent contract agreement to my previous employer and asking them to pay fines because I am working with same client but not through the same old vendor.
Here is the description in the SUB-CONTRACTOR AGREEMENT and this agreement is with my ex-employer
--"Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by ABC Solutions Inc., during the Term and for a period of one year aftertermination
or expiration of this Agreement, SUB-CONTRACTOR will not directly or indirectly, for SUB-CONTRACTOR's own
benefit or for any other third party:(a) solicit the Client(b) encourage, in any way or for any reason, any customer, client (including the
Client) or account of the General’s Office / Client to sever or alter the relationship of such customer, client or
account with General’s Office / Client or (c) solicit, employ, or attempt to entice away from any of General’s Office (AGO) / Client’s employees."--
My previous employer is based from State of Washington and I worked in State of Ohio(Client location)
Where there be any consequences to me?
Because I am working for a same client but different vendor. Not to forget client didn't extend contract to old vendor
