146. Law Office of David Steinfeld, P.L. I left my job and have a non-compete Under Florida law, non-competes are a restraint of trade and are strictly construed according to the Statute that controls them. Non-compete agreements must have consideration to support them and must be reasonable in their geographic scope and time limits.
Noncompetes may also be married with nondisclosure and nonsolicitation agreements. Those also restrict the use of knowledge gained during employment after employment. But NDAs and nonsolicitation agreements are often broader because they protect proprietary business information. However, NDAs and nonsolicitation agreements are not subject to the same limits as noncompetes. This speaks to the basics of a non-compete in Florida.
