FTC Extends Public Comment Period on Its Proposed Rule to Ban Noncompete Clauses

The FTC extended the public comment period for its proposed new rule to ban employers from imposing covenants not to compete on their workers.) The proposed rule, announced by the FTC in January 2023, was based on a preliminary finding that noncompete clauses “constitute an unfair method of competition” and violate Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act. The new comment deadline is April 19, 2023.
