Solicitation of Customers and Employees of ex-employer
« on: October 12, 2016, 04:18:23 AM »
I work in IT industry. I was working with an organisation for a long time. I left them and started a new organisation.

As part of the separation, they wanted me to sign a document which had contained a clause stating I cannot indulge in any “solicitation of their customers and employees”. I found that there is no time duration mentioned for this non-solicitation (some friends told that they normally have this clause for 6 months or so but cannot be indefinite).

To my surprise, some customers now want to us with my new company. In addition, some of my ex-colleagues also are keen to join my start-up.

Do let us know how to handle this situation to avoid any legal issues as I have signed the document.

If at the time of taking the job with this company you did not sign a contract that has this clause or any other clause that you are breaking by leaving. Then you are not bound to sign any thing. In absence of a contract for appointment, it is the wish of employee or employer to terminate the contract on will. So in absence of a contract there is no need for you to sign anything.
