Non compete agreement

I was on H4 and later switched to H1.Her employer collected money for H1 processing.It took four months for him to find her a job .He is not paying the salary which he offered while applying for H1.Right now she is working on a project and he is forcing her to sign a non-compete agreement.He never mentioned about the agreement while applying for H1 or while joining for her current project.He is not giving any benefits including medical insurance.The non compete agreement is for two years after he terminate or I resign my job.Whether this noncompete agreement is valid?

Got to See It

The only way an attorney can give you an opinion as to the validity of any kind of agreement, including a non-compete, is for the attorney to see the agreement. In the case of an H1B employee, the attorney would also need to see the H1B agreement that the employer signed.
