The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has announced that on April 23 it will vote on publishing and then adopting a finalized new rule that will prohibit employers from enforcing non-competes against workers. Under the originally proposed rule, non-compete agreements that bar any worker from accepting competing employment or starting a competing business would be prohibited with some exceptions for a limited category of transactions.

Whatever the contents of the final rule, it is likely to have far-reaching implications for businesses operating in the United States. With several organizations vowing to pursue legal challenges to the new rule, potential legal concerns and complications are imminent.

Join us on April 25 for a webinar in which Bass, Berry & Sims labor & employment and antitrust attorneys will review the new rule and address practical implications pertaining to the ban.
