If I am still with the company after being taken over by new employer. Is non compete still valid?

The company i work for is a hose cleaning company. That hires self-employed people. And they take a % out for themselves. Well when i started with this company. It was giving to a relative and then after 4 years taken back. I have lost customers due to the orginial owner taken back the company. I do house cleaning on the side for myself. If I advertise. And my old customers seek me out or any of this companies old customers seek me out is the non compete still valid? I have had alot of my customers say that they were leaving the company cause they were not getting confirmed phone calls for their appts. And most didn't know that i was coming to clean their houses. And dropped the services with this company. Can I still take them even though i am part time with this company. or not

Without reviewing the actual language of the non-compete agreement, an attorney cannot advise you properly. You should consider consulting with an attorney.

It depends on the language of the noncompete agreement. You should have an employment lawyer review it.
