Is A Non-Compete Clause Enforceable If You Are Fired?

A non-compete clause is enforceable in the state of Florida, even if you are terminated. However, there are a number of defenses to a non-compete, so if you are going to terminate an employee that has a non-compete and you intend on enforcing the non-compete, you may want to talk to an attorney ahead of time to ensure that you are able to enforce that non-compete before you terminate that employee.
