Non-compete for 1099 status

I signed a non-compete agreement with a new employer. However, instead of being a W-2 employee, they are paying me as a 1099. Is the non-compete enforceeable since I am technically not an "official" W-2 employee?

If you received a 1099 from your "employer," you may not be an "employee." Receiving a 1099 has tax implications as well as affecting the non-compete. It also depends on how the non-compete is worded.
