Mclean, VA asked in Business Law for Virginia

Q: Can I provide independent services to a former client based on this agreement?


I am currently working as a tutor for a business. If a client (who I tutored under the business) is no longer receiving services from the business and wants private services from me, will it be a violation of my agreement?

Part of contract:

"Nothing herein precludes tutor from advertising or providing The tutor’s services to the general public. However, while accepting payments through *Business, The tutor is never to advertise or provide The tutor’s services to any or all of *Business’s clients and students, including direct and indirect referrals from students, clients, and families that The tutor is tutoring."

Your help would be appreciated. Thanks.
