Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
Have you pasted all the relevant clauses?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. The clause in question would indeed restrict you from seeking work with an existing client for at least 6 months after you leave the recruiter. This is on the assumption that you are not going to provide these services through another agency with which you were registered at the time this current assignment had started. So if you were already registered with the agency which you want to use to consult for that client AND you were registered with them at the time this assignment started, then you can do it. If that odes not apply, then the clause will restrict you from doing so and you will be ignoring it at your own risk.
Does this answer your query?
Hi what you need in relation to the IR35 may be more involved than what we can offer but you can always try and you do not have to accept an answer if it is not satisfactory in answering your query.
