    The real issue here is that if I am the contractor and I spend money advertising for a janitor, doing phone interviews, in person interviews, paying for profiles, drug testing, background checks, orientations, and training I would have a significant investment in the employee. Going after the employee is not the solution, the solution is to have contracts with your customers that state that if they hire any of your employees within 365 days of terminating the contract they must pay you 30% of the annual salary of each employee that they hire. One of 2 things will happen, they will pay the fee, or they will hire someone other than your employees. Good employees are hard to find and we will always find a home for them.
