Advocacy Submits Comments on FTC’s Non-Compete Clause NPRM
On January 19, 2023, the Federal Trade Commission published a notice of proposed rulemaking for the Non-Compete Clause Rule. The proposed rule would make it an unfair method of competition for an employer to enter into or attempt to enter into a non-compete clause with a worker; to maintain with a worker a non-compete clause; or, under certain circumstances, to represent to a worker that the worker is subject to a non-compete clause. The proposed rule will require employers to rescind current non-compete clauses and will not apply to franchisees.
