Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Please confirm this is a business to business contract?
Ok. In short its not letting you contact anyone from the Company to work for anyone else, not accept direct instructions or include of those existing employees in current executive searches - all for 3 years.
You can't stop that.
It says not to approach or contact an employee
No I do not think so. Clause C would apply to that
However what you may want to consider adding is something to do with industry sector.
So if its within the same industry no, but different industry yes
If that happens then you have a defence under the contract and indeed could counter sue this client who wants this agreement
Either not to sign or add a different industry sector clause.
It does seem a harsh deal but depends on how much you want to work with this client
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Potentially they could sue you for breach of contract. What exactly their losses will be I dont know.
I can't see how they can quantify it
I dont think so, clause A is fairly tight. You can't stop people contact you though
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
If they approach you, that is nothing you can do about that and you can't be penalised
However if you then place them elsewhere, that could be an issue because of clause C
Dont sign the contract
Or restrict it to this industry sector.
If they want to go to different sectors I dont think this should be restricted.
I would do so, that would be the only thing that could help in this situation
Yes that could too if the client is agreeable to that
If this does answer your question could I ask you to rate my answer before you go today, the button should be at the bottom of the screen
