Breach of Contract
'' I have a small business that requires hiring independent contractors. I have had all of my contractors sign an agreement that they pay their own taxes; they receive work from me; they have agreed to a no compete clause stating they will not direct or indirectly solicit or divert from or attempt to convert any firm, person or entity, any customer, any prospective customer, customer list, marketing aid, method, investor, employee or property of my company. My question to you is this form was signed by a contractor that is no longer working for me and myself and dated. No witnesses other than the fact all of my contractors sign the same one. If they solicit one of my customers what legal options do I have? I live in Kansas but figure most states would have the same opinion of this contract as it is one I have signed for the companies in a variety of states that I work for.''
