Non Compete and Confidentiality Agreements
Is My Non-Compete Legit?
Non-compete agreements are used to prevent former employees from competing against the former employer. When an employee leaves an employer, the employee could take certain secrets from the employer to a new place of employment, including client lists, trade secrets, or other general knowledge that could negatively affect the former employer’s business operations. Non-compete agreements are not always enforceable though. State laws in Florida contain strict limitations on the various restrictions that can be placed in a non-compete agreement. The agreements must protect a legitimate business interest, must be for a reasonable period time, and must be limited to a reasonable geographic area.
