I was working for an unprofessional business owner as a independent contractor. The contract I signed only stated that one shall not release the companies sale tactics, or work for competitive companies. The contact was to be revised and rewritten, which did not take place. Worked for less than two weeks as I noticed a lot of unprofessional activity. No trainning, no required license, no correct paper work etc. Apon the second week a agreement with a few childish words verbal agreement between me and the owner that in was free from the company, then shortly treats to sue. I do not understand or see how one can sue, but do to my lack of law knowledge I began to wonder.
It is impossible to advise you without reading the contract. I suggest you look for a local transactional attorney and have them review the contract.
I would suggest you sit down with an attorney who does business law and review your situation. Nevada is very restrictive on non-compete agreements. You should learn what options you have so when you move forward, you will know how best to proceed with finding new employment. Good Luck.
