Is the Non-Solicitation of Clients agreement I signed enforceable?

I was under a Non-Solicitation contract with Sub Contractor (A) to do work for Company (B). Sub-Contractor (A) lost its contract to Company (B) at no fault of mine. I was approached by Sub Contractor (C) to work in the same capacity for Company (B). Now Sub-Contractor (A) has sent a letter stating that I am violation and should stop working immediately. The state is Pennsylvania. The question is, is the Non-Solicitation agreement I signed enforceable under these conditions?

A typical non-solicitation clause prohibits poaching clients, customers or other employees of the employer. It is distinct from a non-compete clause. To ascertain whether the clause is enforceable as written depends on all the facts of your situation. Consult an attorney to review your contact and the factual details of your work arrangement with subcontractor B.
