Non-Compete Enforceability after termination in FL

I was recently terminated from my job in Jacksonville Florida. When I was hired with the company I signed a non-compete agreement. Is that non-compete enforceable if I have been terminated and did not leave of my own free will?

Assuming that you singed a valid enforceable agreement, it would be enforceable even if you were terminated. Of course, if the non-compete agreement has an exclusion for your class of termination, which is unlikely, then it might not be enforceable. You should have your agreement reviewed by a Florida non-compete lawyer
