Quick update: the FTC extended the March 20 deadline to April 19

Well, the title says it all: The FTC extended the March 20 deadline for comments to it’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on noncompetes (the proposed rule to ban noncompete) to April 19.

You can check for yourself here.

In light of the extension, for those waiting for my draft tonight, good news:  I will follow the wisdom of Mark Twain and take some more time to shorten it before burdening you all with reviewing it. (It’s currently 63 pages, down from almost 90.)

But don’t go anywhere, it will be ready soon.

Thank you to Ben Fink for the heads up!
