Dutch term or phrase: relatiebeding
This term appears in an employment contract directly under another article relating to non-competition. The thrust of the 'relatiebeding' is clear, but I can't come up with the right US-English term to verify it. Anyone, oh esteemed colleagues, willing to enlighten this writer? Here's one definition:

"Ook een relatiebeding is erop gericht om de werknemer te beperken in zijn mogelijkheden om u te beconcurreren naar het einde van het dienstverband. In een relatiebeding is opgenomen dat de werknemer na de beëindiging van het dienstverband geen zakelijke contacten mag onderhouden met relaties van uw onderneming. Zorg ervoor dat u het begrip relaties duidelijk omschrijft en neem expliciet in het beding op dat het uw werknemer evenmin is toegestaan op initiatief van de relaties zelf zaken te doen met uw relaties."

TIA for your assistance. Cheers, Rob

non-solicitation clause
Explanation:
Quote:
Any non-competition agreement should, as an adjunct, contain a non-solicitation clause as well.
The non-solicitation clause prevents the employee, for a given period of time, from calling upon or soliciting business from the employer’s customers or clients.
This clause provides an extra layer of protection to the employer should a court refuse to enforce the non-competition clause or decide to reduce its scope.
A non-solicitation clause is especially useful in protecting against the harm which may be inflicted by employees in the customer service or sales fields, and directly prevents former employees from exploiting customer and client relationships developed with the employer’s time and resources.

Reference: (Non-/Niet-)Concurrentiebeding / Relatiebeding / (Non-/Niet-)Wervingsbeding

Reference information:
Non-solicitation clause translates as 'wervingsbeding/niet-wervingsbeding/wervingsclausule'

A 'relatiebeding' is a 'non-dealing clause' ( http://is.gd/aeXstX )

======================================

Relatiebeding:

http://www.bdjuristen.nl/index.php?option=com_content&task=v...

"Een relatiebeding is een beding dat niet toestaat dat werknemers na afloop van de arbeidsovereen-komst contact hebben/opnemen met relaties van de voormalige werkgever. Het beding kent daarbij vele varianten. Het beding kan beperkt zijn tot specifieke relaties, een beperking in tijd is mogelijk en zelfs een beperking tot een bepaald gebied komt voor. Juridisch gezien is het verstandig de relaties expliciet te benoemen om op een later tijdstip eventuele misverstanden te voorkomen. Vaak wordt een relatiebeding, evenals een concurrentiebeding, gekoppeld aan een boetebeding."

http://www.vandoorne.com/Global/Presentaties/Powerpointprese...

"In zijn arbeidsovereenkomst is een relatiebeding opgenomen waarin staat dat hij
gedurende 1 jaar na het einde van het dienstverband geen (voormalige) klanten/zakelijke relaties van zijn werkgever mag benaderen waarmee hij tijdens zijn dienstverband in contact is geweest."

and

"Er zijn verschillende soorten bedingen: anti-wervingsbeding, relatiebeding
en een non-concurrentiebeding."

=======================================

Ergo:

non-competition clause = concurrentiebeding/non-concurrentiebeding

non-dealing clause = relatiebeding

non-solicitation (or non-poaching) clause = wervingsbeding/niet-wervingsbeding

=====================================

http://www.employmentlaw.co.uk/restrictive_covenants_non_sol...

"Non compete
A typical non compete clause stops you from working for any of your ex-employer's competitiors.

"Non Solicitation
There are two types of non solicitation clauses:-

You may be barred from soliciting clients, or indeed potential clients, from your ex-employer.
You may also find you are barred from poaching former colleagues after you leave.

"Non Dealing
A non-dealing clause would stop you from dealing in any way with clients of your ex-employer. A non dealing clause means that even if a client approaches you in your new employment, out of the blue, you would not be able to do business with them.
