Breach of Employment Contract & Non-Compete Lawyers
Florida Employment Contract and Non-Compete Attorneys with Experience
In Florida, most employment relationships are “at-will,” which means that an employer can terminate an employee at any time, with or without reason, as long as it is not a discriminatory reason. However, employees who have a written or verbal contract have added protection.
When an employer breaches a contract, even an implied contract, the employee may lose access to expected commissions, bonuses, or severance packages. If you have been wrongfully terminated from a job or otherwise had a contract broken by your employer, you may have a claim. However, as with all employment disputes, the key to a successful outcome is to learn your rights early in the process by consulting an experienced employment lawyer.
Employment Laws are Designed to Protect you from Job Discrimination
Your job is an important part of your identity as an individual; it can be devastating to you and your family to lose your job and your income. The employment laws are designed to protect you from job discrimination and harassment based on sex, race, age, national origin, religion, creed, alienage, and disability. However, most of these laws are very complicated and it is very easy for an employee to mishandle their claim, often making it worthless.
Our law firm has significant experience enforcing, and breaking, non-compete agreements. We also draft non-compete agreements that comply with the relatively new Florida laws governing employment and competition. If you are a business owner and did not obtain your non-compete agreement from a licensed Florida attorney, or if you are an employee who would like to break a non-compete that you signed, please contact us for a consultation. Our Florida attorneys help both businesses and individuals with these and numerous other employment related matters.
