recruiter lock up period??

fun@work
Hi all,

Is there something called 'recruiter lock up period' for an independent contractor looking out for a job in U.S?I am on work permit and had a similar situation where i was asked to sign up a 'right to represent' form by a recruiter at a staffing company and this stopped other recuiters at the same company to work for me in the future, unless and until i was released from his lock up period.Not sure how far is this correct.But is it a good way for a recruiter to ask the consultants to sign up for a contract and lock you up for ever, without you even not aware that your profile cannot be worked by any other recuiters at the same staffing company?
Can a consultant choose not to sign up for such a thing?

Appreciate your views,
Thanks
