I have an (unsigned) clause added in an at-will employee manual that states employee may not solicit work from any current or past client of company for period of one year after resignation. Upon resignation, I plan to email or call some clients to advise them that I have resigned from the company to open my own firm, to state that they are my former company clients and that I am NOT asking for their business but I would appreciate any new potential references, projects, or clients that are not, or never have been, clients of my former company. Is this contact a breach? What if former clients contact me about new work - am I free to share my 1-year non-compete and state after this period I would love to work with them? Is this a breach because I reveal company policy?
