Hi there, thanks for your question. My name isXXXXX can help with this.
Were you employed or working as self-employed contractor?
OKay. And the company, is it working in concert with others to refuse to allow you to work for them?
That's how I read your question, but I want to be sure.
Legally, they're allowed to decide who to use to provide supplies. However, by contacting others and inisting they do not use you, they may be in fact breaking two potential laws. They might be (a) unlawfully procuring a breach of contract and/or (b) consipring to injure.
Both areas can be difficult and are rarely ever used by lay people brining their own claims. Only experienced lawyers tend to look at these "torts" and if you therefore go and see a solicitor after this chat, then you should refer to the terms I've just used.
Suing a second witness isn't something that affects you, is it?
I see. Well, this is perhaps useful to show that they're conspiring to injure you and/or deliberately out to be vindictive against everybody. I think it's worth you getting a solicitor's letter sent to them to point out they if they keep trying to persuade people to not use you, then you will sue them for compensation and an injunction.
You're welcome. Is there anything else I can assist with about this?
