I've been told by Maxim's recruiter/schedulers that I cannot apply to work (aka employed)at a facility that I've worked at under Maxim for one whole year, is this true, and is this legal? I have been working at such and such a hospital, I like it, and in fact I'm orientating other nurses because I work full-time there a lot. Is it legal for me to quit Maxim and work there? I can't possibly think its legal to enforce such a contract just because if I work at Meijers grocery store they can't also say its illegal to work at Kroger grocery store just because they deal with food!

Common. However, most agencies will have the new employee sign a statement upon hire that stipulates the consequences: $2500 (typical amount) fine for both employee and hiring employer. Consultation with an employment attorney would be wise.
