Can a company stop me from working with a company that contracts with them?

I was contracted under my own DBA to deliver and install appliances into new homes. I also had to supply/hire my own employees to do these jobs. The requirements for the employees that we had was they needed to pass a background check and drugscreen through them to work for us. i recently had my contract pulled and no longer have my business with them. I have 4 friends that do the same thing with that company and offered to hire me to work for them so I can make a living. Even though I am completely legal under their guidelines the are telling my friends that I cannot work for them for fear of losing their contracts with them. This company has several former contractors that was terminated that are currently working under somebody else there but I’m being blackballed basically. Is this legal and do I have any recourse for this problem. Also, I would like to add that this decision is not from the owners but from personal issues from a manager.
