A few days ago I had a phone interview with a client over here in Belgium, arranged through an Irish agency: but before the phone call I had to reply to a mail confirming that I agreed to the terms of a document this agency had sent me, stating that I wouldn't seek to get in touch with this same client for a duration of 6 months afterwards ("consultant agrees not to provide or attempts to provide services other than through , to client...").
I marked my agreement to such conditions, but I never had to do that in the past already at the stage of the interview.
No penalty foreseen in this document if I breach this agreement.
Is it something someone has already seen ? Is it usual ? Cause now, if I ever get contacted, say in 4 months, for another job, at the same client's, by another agency... it seems I'll have to turn offer down ?
