Non-Solicitation clause in contract

Hi,
What does non-solicitation in contract mean? " agreed to not solicit for the the business of client of the company". Does it mean that the employee can't even employed by employer's client? or it means not to acquire the business of the client?
Thanks

A non-solicitation clause basically means that when/if you leave your job, you cannot poach clients and/or employees from your current employer, depending on the wording of the clause. It is unidirectional, meaning it prohibits you from doing it. If clients come to you directly, and they approach you, that's normally fine.

Hope that helps.
