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. We regularly assist individuals in evaluating the enforceability of non-compete agreements, and provide representation to employees in litigation involving non-compete agreements.

When you’ve been injured and suffered damages because of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, or because of the greed and failure of big builders or big insurance companies to honor their obligations to you and your family, you need a law firm willing to stand up and fight for you. You need a law firm willing to fight for your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve. At Burnett Law, P.A., we’ve been standing up for Florida’s injured and Florida’s homeowners for years.
As more companies emerge with new technology and innovative ideas, business owners seek to protect their businesses by using noncompete agreements. These restraints on trade and competition, however, are historically unfavored. Noncompete claims may emerge when a former employee wishes to work for a competitor or open a new business of his or her own.
The employment lawyers of Burnett Law, P.A., can review such agreements to ensure that they have met all legal requirements. We can also help employees who have noncompete claims when these agreements do not meet the necessary requirements.

Non-compete agreements are an important element in today’s business environment. The restrictions that such agreements impose on employees are necessary to ensure competing businesses do not gain an unfair advantage in the marketplace. For example, without non-compete agreements, a senior executive at one company would be able to “sell” valuable trade secrets he had acquired at that company to whichever competitor was willing to pay the highest price for them. In another situation, a company may have paid for specialized training for an employee only to witness that employee take his or her newly acquired skills to a competitor soon after completing that training.
