Non-compete and Non-solicitation Agreements
Restraints on trade are not favored in Florida. However, Florida statutes chapter 542 provides that a non-compete agreement or a non-solicitation agreement is enforcable as long as certain conditions are met. Those conditions include:
- The restricted convenant (non-compete or non-solicitation) must be in writing.
- Cannot be over broad in their time restriction nor have a vague geographical description.
