What is the legality of a non compete agreement? Posted on February 09, 2011

In the state of Florida, can an employer legally terminate my employment and hold me to a non-compete agreement? I am a Certified Nurse Midwife currently working out a six weeks notice and having great difficulty finding employment in my area of expertise. The agreement in my contract is worded as follows: "Employee agrees and covenants that for a period of 1 year following the termination of this Agreement, whether such termination is voluntary or involuntary, Employee will not directly or indirectly engage in any business competitive with Employer." Thanks for your help.
