Florida non-compete and trade secrets attorney Jonathan Pollard discusses non-compete agreements in the staffing and recruiting industry. Although there are certain exceptions, in many instances, non-compete agreements in the staffing industry should be unenforceable due to a lack of legitimate business interest.
This discussion draws from a recent case pitting the staffing agency KForce against a rival Beacon Hill. Specific sub-topics discussed include lack of confidential information in the staffing and recruiting industry, lack of protectable customer relationships and exceptional circumstances where a non-compete should be enforced.
