My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: OH
I had a 3 day project for some company let's say company "2"as a subcontractor for company "1'' and I signed a contract with company "1" that includes the section posted below . Now I want to apply for a job at company "2" with recomandations from someone I worked with in the 3 day project , is the folowing section preventing me to do this ?
