I am consultant at company V which provides services and staff to its client (company C).
I am accepting an offer from company C. Company V is upset about this and states that I am violating their non-compete agreement that I signed.
The terms state that I cannot work with a "Restricted Party" if I terminate my relationship with company V. Here is their definition for Restricted Party.
"Restricted Party" shall mean any business in direct or indirect competition with "Company V" or a Client that Employee was assigned to.
I interpret that ambiguous definition as I should not be working for a competitor of Company V or a competitor of its client. Is this interpretation valid?
Can they enfore an ambiguous definition like that in court to their interpretation?
