It is standard in the field you are working in. I used to be a contractor as well. If you are getting paid though then you are getting screwed because you are going to get a 1099 at the end of the year and have to pay out on it and take care of your own Social Security and Insurance. You should be making at least $25 an hour as a Subcontractor Jr. Admin to cover this. Otherwise calculate these expenses and subtract it from your current hourlsy pay. You are probably making minimum wage. :eh:

1.) The only way a non-compete is legal is if in the contract it is stated you are being paid a specified amount of money for that non-compete, even if it says a specific portion of your salary is compensation for the non-compete, if thats not stated its not legal... period.. cut and dry.

2.) If your employer expects you to be at work at a specific time and provides the items you need to do your job and has the right to fire you if you do not show up on time, etc. you are their employee therefore they are obligated to pay your taxes.

3.) If you pursue this legally (with the labor board) the employer becomes liable for his portion of F.I.C.A. and Medicaid as well as your portion.

Sounds to me like he thinks your in China.

Only reason he would even have this type of BS contract is to keep from paying you overtime, benefits, and paying Uncle Sam his portion of Taxes.

Contrary to what that other guy had to say, non-compete's hardly hold up in Texas. My mom took one to court and won, they listed her region as "Southwest" not southwest texas, but TX, LA, OK, AZ, NM, et.c..... judge through them out on their ear. Said they can not forbid an ex-employee from working.

"In Texas, non-competition covenants are disfavored by courts, but judges will enforce a valid covenant not to compete if it is properly drafted and executed and the covenant's restraints are reasonable. "
