What is a non-compete clause

Q.

What is a non-compete clause?

A.

A non-compete clause is a provision in a contract where on party promises not to compete with another after the relationship is over. The parameters have to be deemed reasonable by a court.

[Legal point: In Florida, a court can “blue pencil” or modify the written provision – striking what is unreasonable and narrow the scope or length.]
