Can a former employee be prevented from approaching former employer's customers?

If a former employee approaches customers that they used to have regular contact with at the former employer and those customers express the following:
they would rather do business with the former employee; they have no exclusive contract with the former employer; the former employer has not made any attempt to maintain the business relationship and seemingly abandoned the trade since terminating the employee in question; and there has not been any business with the former employer for some time even before the employee in question was terminated, can a non-compete be enforced?

You really should have an employment lawyer look at the terms of the non compete. There can be many defenses to enforcement in florida. I have many postings on this issue on my employee rights blog www.takethisjobnshoveitblog.com.
