Mederi Caretenders sued Ms. White, a former employee, alleging she violated a noncompete clause by going to work for another home health care agency. The trial court issued a summary judgment in Ms. White’s favor but the Fourth District Court of Appeal overturned that decision, ruling Florida law protecting business interests did apply to referral sources in the home health care field. The 4th DCA also certified conflict with a decision by the Fifth District Court of Appeal.
