I was fired in large part due to an individual's interference. I signed a settlement agreement which contained a provision between me and the party not to interfere with each other's employment. I recently found out the party's lawyer sent information to my prior employer in order to interfere with my employment discrimination lawsuit. He did this after the agreement was signed and out of vindictiveness as I was suing him for a related issue. The agreement contained language making the other party responsible for their agent and representative violation. Now, my question is would this interference in the employment discrimination lawsuit fall under interfering with my employment, although I am still fired from my job (no resolution in the employment discrimination case). Basically would this fall under potential employment or reemployment? Here is the clause in particular;
Not to appear at, contact or interfere with [my] employment, including but not limited to contacting his present and future employers, fellow employees and customers.
This Settlement Agreement shall be binding upon the parties and their respective...agents and affiliates.
Perhaps best to consult with a lawyer to review all the facts and evidence and a plan of action.
