I have worked for a company as a "contracted seasonal" position. The employer was finished needing my services and terminated the seasonal position. Now, I am looking for employment in that same field and the company has told me I am held in a noncompete agreement with them for 12 months AFTER the seasonal position has ended. I have been in this field for over 20 years! Can the company keep me to this when I was never a permanent employee & the position was only seasonl?!!! I have bills to pay & I will be unable to do this if I can't find work. What can I do legally?
