I am an independent contractor massage therapist. About a year ago I signed an agreement with a booking agient. I was NOT an employee, but an IC, taking care of my own taxes, etc. There is a non compete clause that is very vaige. No time limit or defined geographical area specified. Is this a legel and binding document? OH yea, and + I was terminated.

Non-compete in an independent contractor agreement

Non-competes can be valid if they are in an independent contractor agreement. Non-competes do not apply only to employees.

Whether or not your non-compete is too vague or broad to be enforceable requires an individual analysis, which would be essentially the same analysis as that applied to any other non-compete agreement.
