Refusal to do so would mean not signing off on the apprenticeship. There was no mention of a noncompete clause in the original agreement. The apprentice has never been paid as an employee but more like a independent contractor. In fact, payments have always been in cash with no taxes taken out.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Part timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
