Florida non-compete agreements can lead to litigation

In matters of employment, the decisions that an individual makes at the beginning of their tenure with a Florida company can have longstanding effects, even after they choose to leave to pursue other career options. One executive who recently left Amazon to go to work for Google is currently facing just such a challenge and is being sued by his former employer. Non-compete agreements form the backbone of this and similar lawsuits, and are an issue that both employees and employers should pay close attention to.

Employee sues for breach of contract, non-compete clause

A recent business litigation case in West Palm Beach, Florida, highlights the difficulties that workers can have when the terms of their employment are not in line with the employment agreement that they originally signed. The case pits one worker against the debt-collection agency with whom he has been employed for 10 years. The employee has filed suit against his employer, alleging breach of contract.

Banker to go to trial for violation of non-compete agreements

Some Florida residents may remember BankUnited, a failed Florida bank that has now been acquired by a former owner of North Fork Bancorp. After selling North Fork to Capital One and apparently signing a non-compete agreement, the community banker acquired BankUnited and last year scooped up another small bank. That move, however, has led the community banker into significant legal trouble regarding alleged violation of the non-compete agreement set out by Capital One.
