For employers who are concerned about a complaint or possible legal action by a dismissed worker or an employer who is undergoing a reorganization or reduction of force necessary for the elimination of workers, it is essential to have a properly developed separation agreement aimed at avoiding disputes and terminating the employment relationship. Similarly, a non-compete clause doesn`t seem like a big thing, but it can significantly limit your ability to make a living after leaving the employer. Competition bans may be enforceable with the correct language under Florida law. If your employer insists on a non-compete clause as a precondition for severance pay, you may want to consider negotiating a certain time frame and geographical coverage. At the beginning of the complaint, the Florida employer filed a motion to dismiss part of the complaint and argued that the worker had waived her right to file a complaint for these cases by signing the termination agreement. . . .
