I have an employment agreement with my previous employer in which one clause says that I cannot take employment directly or indirectly from the client or the client of the client for a period of 360 days following the completion of the assignment. I gave a notice the employer resigning from the company and started my own company and working for the same client. This contract is subject to Michigan laws and now my previous employer is threatning me that he will take legal action against me for violating the contract. I want to know whether this non-competance clause mentioned above is allowed in Michigan, if it allowed, if my employer goes to court, what is my stand?
