Orlando, Florida Non-Compete and Non-Disclosure Employee Agreements Attorney
Non-compete and non-disclosure agreements are typically entered into at the start of employment with the goal of precluding employees from performing specific work, or revealing skills or trade secrets to a competitor after an employee has ceased working for the original employer. If you are currently bound by or a potential employer is requesting you to executed one of these agreements, you need the advice of an experienced employment attorney to help assert your rights in this agreement.
Since employers typically draft these agreements in order to protect their business and trade secrets from competitors, they seldom take an employee’s rights and interests into account. If you have been improperly terminated and an employer is enforcing one of these agreements against you, our firm can assist you in asserting your rights under the agreement.
At Wilson McCoy, our employment law attorneys in Orlando have over 30 years of combined experience handling the following disputes:
- Non-compete agreements: A non-compete agreement typically precludes an employee from performing specific work for a competitor after termination of the employee’s employment. This can be especially harmful to employees with a limited skill set or with a high-tech job. Our Orlando employee agreement attorneys are highly trained in challenging non-compete agreements that are overbroad and/or improperly preclude an employee’s ability to earn a living.
- Non-disclosure agreements: A non-disclosure agreement precludes a former employee from divulging business or trade secrets. If you have a dispute with a non-disclosure agreement you have been asked to sign or have signed, we can thoroughly read and assess the agreement to help you determine if you have grounds to legally challenge your employer and protect your rights.
- Employment contract: Some employees also enter into additional employment contracts that grant them certain employment benefits. In such cases, our attorneys are highly skilled in representing clients in contract disputes concerning unpaid wages or hourly disputes, severance package agreements, benefit disputes, and all other contracts that arise between employers and employees.
If you are currently facing a dispute under any of the agreements or contracts above, let our employee lawyers fight for your rights. Contact our office immediately to set up a consultation with one of our experienced employee rights attorneys.
