    I am going to be hiring a couple of subcontractors for snow removal. For those of you that do use subcontractors, do you have them enter into any type of contract? I am also interesting in finding out if any of you have them sign a a non-compete statement so that they don't try to take away any of your customers. I am very interested in finding out what language you use in your contracts and non-compete clauses. Thanks!

    you also should talk with your accountant and insurance agent regarding this. It can be kind of a headache sometimes.

    Hi lawnguy12,

    If you do a google search for non-compete clause contract, I am sure you will find many samples.

    Word of Caution...

    Take a look at Uncle Sam's versions of what a contractor is versus what you think it is. What you deem as a subcontractor, gov't probablly calls them employees...

    I don't know off the top of my head but its 3 questions you need to ask yourself. Most of the time snow plow subcontractors will not fit into the subcontractor category.
