Attorney Maurice Arcadier, of Melbourne, Florida, discusses the Employment Law legal issue of Non-compete Agreements in Non-Compete Video

Maurice Arcadier, the managing partner of the law firm of Arcadier and Associates, of Melbourne, Florida, discusses non-competition issues in the State of Florida. Non-compete video under Florida law

Non-competition agreements, as codified by Florida Statute Chapter 542.335 are a common place in many types of technologically driven jobs. Indeed, companies want to protect their investments in training, and the proprietary information they have invested in. However, more and more, non competes are being used to keep employees from seeking better opportunities with employment elsewhere. The law, via the interpretation of the Courts, are being caused to balance the legitimacy of the non compete to further legitimate business goal. Dirtectly incorporated into the non-compete statute is a requirement that the non compete server a legitimate business interest. This key phrase has oftentimes been defined as causing the employer money. Not just the cost of training a new employee or in loosing the benefits of the work and value of the employee, but rather, an actual monetary harm that is caused by an employee who goes work for a competitor.
