Recently, a brother in faith did this. I wanted to know if he did the correct thing and if this is allowed in Islam :
The brother recently opened a new catering business. However, in order to get good cooks for his business , he told 2 cooks who were currently working in other restaurants , that he would pay them a higher salary if they worked for him. In this way, he got them to leave those restaurants and work for him. Is this allowed?

As long as he was truthful and honest, there is no problem in this
