Are there any Client/Agency/Freelancer Non compete terms?

 

Are there any non compete provisions that protect the agency from clients hiring the freelancers directly after a short assignment?

 

Thanks

 No, there are not. You can have whatever agreement / terms / contract you like with your agency members, but if they are non-exclusive they are, as far as Upwork is concerned, free to work with any client on the platform.

 

You can have them sign a non compete agreement, but like any agreement it is only as useful as your ability to enforce it.

 

Upwork would not get involved in any dispute between an agency and an agency freelancer over something that is a private arrangement beetween the agency and the freelancer.
