UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
I have been working as a Project Manager under my current contract for 2 years and need a change of scene (it’s like banging your head against a wall and now I just want to go and bang my head against a different wall). It’s not that I particular want to change agency, my concerns are if a different agency offers me a contract with a different service provider to the same end customer how enforceable is the restrictive covenant?
I should probably point out that I don’t think that the new contact I’m hoping to get offered would be directly available through my current agency as it is through a different service provider who has its own preferred suppliers (agencies).
I’m not trying to “cut out” the current agency, I am looking at a completely different contract role that just happens to be for the same end customer.
