Restrictions on Noncompetes: Preparing for Potentially Sweeping FTC Noncompete Regs
Enforceability of Recent Executive Order to Promote Competition
A live 90-minute CLE video webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE course will advise employment counsel about how to prepare for changes signaled by the executive order (EO) President Biden signed regarding noncompete agreements. As requested by the EO, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) proposed regulations to curtail the use of noncompete clauses and other clauses or agreements that may limit worker mobility. The panel will discuss the proposed FTC rules and the state law trend of curtailing the use of restrictions on employee mobility, such as noncompete agreements.
- History of noncompete regulation
- Biden Executive Order
- FTC possible regulations
- Future of noncompete beyond low-wage workers
- Best practices for employers in the future seeking to limit unfair competition and protect their businesses
The panel will review these and other critical issues:
- What does the Promoting Competition in the American Economy Executive Order accomplish?
- What has the FTC stated or implied regarding its proposed rulemaking?
- How have states handled restrictions on noncompetes?
- How can counsel best address the potential limitations on using noncompetes when developing employment policies in the future?
