Did you hope for a quiet start to the new year?
Not going to happen.
The FTC just proposed a ban on noncompetes with virtually no exceptions. And, they have placed nondisclosure agreements and other restrictive covenants squarely in the crosshairs.
In this episode, John, Ben, and I take a look at the FTC’s proposed ban on noncompetes, how we got here, what the proposed rule would do, the potential practical and legal problems with it, the opportunity to provide comments to the FTC about it, what employers should do in the interim to protect their trade secrets and customer goodwill, and predictions on where this all goes.
And, because this show is for you, please email John, Ben, or me with any topics you’d like to hear us discuss. While we cannot offer legal advice on the show, we can certainly discuss any issues you may be wondering about.
