Non-Compete Contracts Void For Sarasota Doctors?

The Tampa based employment law firm of Kwall Barack Nadeau frequently represents physicians in non-compete litigation.

This article is to inform you that there has been a bizarre change to the law that seems to void the non-compete contracts of a group of doctors in Sarasota, but only those doctors!

It will be interesting to see if the law survives scrutiny and how the concepts might be applied to others.

Here is the text of the new law:

542.336 Invalid restrictive covenants. – A restrictive covenant entered into with a physician who is licensed under chapter 458 or chapter 459 and who practices a medical specialty in a county wherein one entity employs or contracts with, either directly or through related or affiliated entities, all physicians who practice such specialty in that county is not supported by a legitimate business interest. The Legislature finds that such covenants restrict patient access to physicians, increase costs, and are void and unenforceable under current law. Such restrictive covenants shall remain void and unenforceable for 3 years after the date on which a second entity that employs or contracts with, either directly or through related or affiliated entities, one or more physicians who practice such specialty begins offering such specialty services in that county.
