If I work as a private contractor providing service for various agencies who service the market that I live near. Can I open up my own agency in the area? Of course I wouldn’t take any of their existing clients (and I would continue working for them to service these clients), but I would provide an additional agency for new clients to choose.
Thanks for such a helpful resource.
There is no problem of opening your own agency. Taking clients from existing agencies is a problem (known as ‘maarofia’), but actually opening up a rival establishment – whether a store or an agency – is perfectly fine.
This is especially true in view of the fact that you are opening up locally.
