I am a contractor working for Vodafone group limited . I usually sing 3 months contracts. last Friday 28th August. my contract ran out. I have been asked to sign a renewal. (as yet unsigned) I have been offered a permanent job role with a different completely business group within Vodafone that I would like to accept. Note: my agency say that because it is still Vodafone the clause that says I cannot work for client company is enforceable and they will take legal action unless I sign their contract which starts on the 29th August and runs until December the 24th. also, note that the contract has no resignation clause and only states that if leave early I would be liable to pay damages for the shortfall. Where do I stand legally? ...I would like to take the permanent role but my limited company is being threatened with legal action ? can I close it and not be bound by this clause? is even what my agency doing legal ?
Have you received the contract you asked me to send in ?
Do you have an email address i can send it too ?
They say that because the it is still Vodafone. They will take my limited company to court. I have had no dealing whatsoever with new Vodafone business as it is secure defence contracts. it is not in the same location. The different company is a move from Vodafone group limited to Vodafone UK Limited. different companies with different registrations.
