I work for an Indian IT Consulting company.
From past 20 months, I have been working in the USA on an onsite project at client site, on H-1B Visa.
My client would like me to join as full time employee, but I have this “non-compete clause” agreement with my current employer which says I cannot accept or seek employment with client for a period of, at least, one year following the end of my international assignment.
Does this contract hold any value in the USA?
Can I just ignore this agreement and quit my current employer to join Customer?
Thanks in advance!
