    Great information Susan. I’d like to add that if all these items you mentioned are covered (but what if the VA Team does not uphold their end of the contract re changing expectations, changing the rate, failing to pay you for time worked — basically deviation from any of the agreed upon terms of their contract which you have signed),what next steps would you take?

      Diane, sorry this happened to you. I would contact my attorney and take the next step to get what was promised.

    You’re absolutely right! The company you do subcontract work for cannot tell you to shut down your business or what kind of work you do in your business BUT they CAN not only have you sign a confidentiality agreement, but also sign a limited non-compete when it comes to their current clients. 🙂

      I’m getting started and think sub-contracting with someone established would be a great way to start.
