I am in a business law class, and we talked about FL labor and employment laws last night, this came up. The are enforcible in FL. If you put in there you can work for anyone in the area, engage in the same kind of business steal clients, for a a time period. it must be reasonable.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Steve,

A Non-Compete isn't used to KEEP good employee's. It's merely a protection mechanism for companies. They are quite often used in other industries. More so in larger companies in my opinion, but can be used by any business owner.

Regarding keeping good employee's, the way I've always felt is to treat your employee's well and the dividend that will be paid will be proportional. Building a good team that works well together and in harmony with your companies philosophies that has a can do attitude is what all employers should strive for. Little perks and At-A-Boy or Girl awards in some form or fashion along with fair pay and a healthy work environment with a Boss that truly cares will help to keep GOOD employee's.

Having said that, also protect your company, because employee's can and often do try to take advantage of a good thing.

Just my 2 cents.

Also i was not referring to Non-compete, read my post again where i say "I'm not sure if I'm misunderstanding what your saying". As in they cant work for "any" company's within that area and not saying any company with in the same business as company in question.

So all in all i misunderstood the reply's meaning.
