I'm a resident of a south american country, working remotely for an US company, which I'm going to call "the client".
I've signed a contract with a firm through which I work for "the client". Let's call this company "the contractor" company.
Both companies are US based.
On my contract there's a non compete clause (I'm translating this, since the original is not in English. Please ask for further clarification if the precise wording matters):
During the validity of the present agreement and during the period of the following 24 months to its termination under any circumstance, the "provider" (me) can't directly or indirectly solicit, interfere, or try to lure, alone or in a partnership or any other company or organization any "client" from company X with which he's been involved through any service lent through this agreement. If any of these items is not met, the "provider" has to pay company X 20k USD
Now, the situation is that "the client" has offered me a full time position in an office in Ireland. If I decide to take that offer, would that incur in a breach of that term?
Is this something that they can enforce on a different country?
The amount is not something that "the client" wouldn't want to pay for the transfer, but it would be nice to avoid having any trouble.
