If there is nothing in the agreement or any supplementary documents, then no, they are not permitted to do this.

Since we complained nothing chsnged and she was, allowed to continually work in our area meaning loss of income

Hi,

You will need to check your Franchise Agreement for area and exclusivity, if the franchise agreement states that you have sole exclusivity for your area, this is a clear reach and you need to take thi sup with the Franchisor.

If they do not terminate the other parts agreement or narrow their jurisdiction or scope, you would be able to.sue for breach of contract.

I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
