Does contract breach void contract and fee me of a non-compete

I signed a non-compete with a firm in Florida. I was terminated and can now not work in my field. The employer is in breach of the employment contract for failing to provide me health insurance as written into the employment letter. Can I void this contract due to the breach?

Non-Compete

If your former employer attempts to enforce the non-compete you could raise the breach of contract as a defense. You may also have other defenses and should consult with legal counsel to review your non-compete and the facts of your case.
