Then I was brought on as a W-2 employee, and the compensation remained the same. When I became a W-2 employee, I was required to sign a new and detailed non-compete agreement, but not compensated extra for signing it. On the other hand, such states as Pennsylvania and Delaware do not. Interestingly, though, Pennsylvania and Delaware courts do view either (a) a promotion, or (b) any increase in compensation, to be sufficient consideration for a non-compete agreement.

Question 5: Can a former employer type “FIRED” all over my W-2 tax forms, even though I won unemployment? Question 7: I live in Pennsylvania half the year, and in Florida half the year. My employer’s health insurance covers me in Pennsylvania, but if I see a doctor in Florida it’s considered “out of network” and a lot more expensive. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
