I have a non-compete clause as part of the contract with my current employer but didn't know that it would apply if I worked for a client.
A recruiter from a client's company reached out to me for a position. I had a phone interview but I just now discovered that I cannot work for them (per my non-compete clause) so I will decline the on-site interview. Can I get sued by my current employer for this? I am just now aware of what the clause entails and will not work for this client.
Thanks for your help!
