Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm happy to assist you.

So let me make sure that I understand this correctly. You are employed full time by Company A, which sounds like it may be a staffing agency, and you want to know if you can accept employment from Company B, which you have been assigned by Company A to work for. As you correctly point out, this will depend on the terms of your agreement with Company A, which I'll be happy to review for you.

Typically, the agreement between a staffing agency and its employees doesn't prohibit employment with one of its clients (Company B). Instead, it's the agreement between the staffing agency and its clients that sets forth the terms under which the client may directly hire one of the agency's employees - typically there is a fee involved if the direct hire takes place before a certain time period. However, please send me your contract and I'll be happy to take a look and let you know.
