My question involves independent contractors in the state of: MN
I entered into a Indep Sales Rep Agrmt & Indep Contractor Non-Compete Agrmt Addendum(the generic one thats online) for a specific role/division within a company on 12/10. On 4/11, I signed a new Indep Rep Agrmt w/ for an additional role/division with same company, but did not re-do I.C. non compete. Again, the generic non-compete is a fill-in the blank: date, name, company, period of time=48 months, & sign.
My ?'s are:
Is the original non-compete still valid??
If I wanted to I.C. w/ another company(meaning quit the 1st) that offers the 2nd rep agrmt services, but not the service of the original rep agrmt??
Does it matter that I have only been doing the "competing services" in question for less than a year, yet the no-compete is 4 years??
Does the fact that the owner of the company treats me like an employee: i.e. clock in/out, use of company vehicles/supplies w/o charge or spelled out in any agrmt??
I hope I gave you enough info to answer. Thanks for any insight you can shed on this!!
