Is this clause in my temp agency agreement fair?

Is it fair for my temp agency to prevent me from being hired on full time at the current business I'm contracted with?

I was hired as a contract worker through a temp agency at a large company. There have been recent talks about converting me to a full time employee, however, I was reading through my temp agency contract and found this clause:
"Employee acknowledges that he/she will assist in maintaining its business relationship with the client. Employee agrees that he/she will not perform any services for the client, as an employee, contractor or consultant except through , during the term of the contract and for 120 days after Employee stops performing services under this contract."
I've been working the current contract for about 3 months, and previously worked a year through the same agency and company for an entire year under a different contract. I would really like to work full time at this company, but will I really have to wait 120 days before I can start working full time for them? Or, is there away to bypass this?
