Employment Contract Law in Florida
In Florida, most employees are hired “at will.” This means that an employer can terminate an employee for any reason, any time and without notice. Some people believe that they were fired for no reason, and in Florida, this is fairly common with regards to employee terminations. In Florida, employees are also under no obligation to their employer and may also quit their job at will, at any time for any reason.
Employment Contracts in an “At Will” Employment State
Although Florida is considered an “at will” employment State, a legal employment contract between an employer and an employee or a union and an employer is a legal and binding contract which will define specific terms such as: the term of employment between the two parties. Employment contracts may also address employment termination (causes), salary, benefits, vacation, leave and other matters regarding employment.
Enforceable Employment Contracts in Florida
Writing and enforcing an employment contract in Florida is a delicate matter and it’s wise to consult with an employment contract attorney to ensure that your contract is legally binding and doesn’t contain language that can render it invalid. In order for an employment contract to be enforceable, an employment contract must specify a length of time. There are other requirements that counsel will go over with you at the time of service. Remember, breach of contract actions can be enforceable in Florida by both the employer and employee.
We’re often asked if an employer can enforce a non-compete contract in Florida. The answer is yes, depending on the circumstances. If trade secrets or the employer’s clients are being infringed upon, then the employer may try to enforce the non-compete. There is certain verbiage in non-compete contracts that the courts may look for when ruling on a breach of contract case however. It is our job to ensure that your contracts are written in the best interest of our clients and according to Florida law.
