Non-Compete Agreements (Representation of Employees and Former Employees)
Many employers require employees to enter into non-compete agreements as a condition of employment. Non-compete agreements intend to prevent individuals from competing with an employer after employment has ended.
In Florida, non-compete agreements can be enforceable, and can profoundly impact an individual’s ability to earn a livelihood after separating from an employer. For this reason, employees confronted with a non-compete agreement should seek legal counsel before signing. Regardless, non-compete agreements are not always enforced. There are a number of defenses to non-compete agreements available.
