My current AGENCY has a clause prohibiting me for working with the
client (either independently or through another party) that I have been
assigned to for one year after the start of the contract.

This has been a major hassle.

Talk to the government office in charge of labor or hire an attorney.

DO NOT SIGN THAT CONTRACT.
