Can I apply for a job with a customer of my former employer?
Question Details: I signed an employee separation, waiver release agreement. Under confidential information there is a clause that says, "Employee will not make use of such information on employee's own behalf". Does this mean that I can't apply for a job at one of the company's customer?
Agreements are enforced as they are written: if the agreement doesn't bar you from working for a customer of your former employer, you may do so. All you can't do is use an information learned/gained at this job at your next one.
