I have my own business & this relates to being an ind. contractor working w/ another comp.

Question Details: I worked w/ another company & signed their ind. contractor agreement. When I gave notice I was ceasing our work relationship, they immediately send me an addtl. doc. to sign & fax back. Do I have to sign this addtl. thing since we're not working together anymore? What will they do if I don't sign it? Can they compel me to sign it? They still owe me approx. $2k, they won't withhold right? This addtl. doc. seems to bind me personally into a non-compete w/ them on any industry they work in . . that's a lot of potential customers!
