Hi All,

If your employment contract has the following clause:

"The employee may not solicit work from the client in the same area of service for a period of x months after employment"

What is the definition of "solicit work" in the following case? Does it mean that you may not setup a business competing with this company for the same client, or does it mean you also cannot be hired by client as an employee? Also, does it mean that I cannot ask the client but the client can offer me?

Appreciate your advice on this.

Dun loose any sleep over this stupid clause. It is against Labour Law, meant only for certain "proprietory occupation" but those contracts would contain more elaborate definitions.
