A Non-Compete Agreement can restrict a former employee from taking your customers and working for a company in a similar industry.


It is important to note that not all states enforce these agreements on the grounds that is contrary to public policy.


However, Florida law does allow an employer and employee to enter into a Non-Compete Agreement. The restraints on time and geographical area must be in accordance with Florida law or else a court will refuse to enforce it. For example, a Non-Compete Agreement restricting a former employee from working for a competitor for over 5 years would almost certainly be struck down by a Florida court.
