I am a employer of company working at a client location . My employer is not direct vendor of the client . There is a prefered vendor in between . when I joined my employer he made me to sign some terms like this :
The Employee agrees that during the period of this
agreement and for a period of twelve (12) months after the termination of this Agreement, he/ she Will NOT (1) directly or indirectly induce any Clients, End Clients ( Clients through a Vendor), Customers, Vendors, or Agents of the Company to patronize any competing professional;) etc..
I am not sure if he is right in making me sign this document as he is not a direct vendor of my client . My query is if I change my employer but works for the same client through same or other prefered vendor , can my employer sue me ??
