Non-Compete Agreements are an essential tool to prevent an employee or contractor from leaving your company and taking your business with them. The “scope”, or broadness of your non-compete agreement is the main aspect that will determine its enforceability. Non-competes that are deemed “overbroad”, or overly restrictive, will not be enforceable in court. In Florida, Non-Competition Agreements are enforceable as long as they are about 18 months to 2 years in length or shorter, and within a reasonable mile radius, depending on where your business is located.
Taking action quickly is essential in a potential non-compete violation to prevent damages to your business. Contact the TLF Business Attorneys for exceptional representation to protect your interests.
