Florida pushes noncompete ban for physicians

A proposed bill in the Florida House would eliminate noncompete agreements for physicians, NBC affiliate WCTV reported Nov. 29.

The bill aims to address the healthcare worker shortage; by 2035, the state is projected to see a shortage of nearly 18,000 physicians, the report said. 

Florida put limits on some restrictive contracts in 2019, but the bill under consideration would eliminate noncompetes. There is a similar bill in the Senate, according to the report.
