FTC RIN: 3084-AB74 Publication ID: Fall 2022 
Title: ●Covenants Not to Compete Rule 

Pursuant to sections 5 and 6(g) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, staff anticipates that the Federal Trade Commission will propose the Covenants Not to Compete Rule during the Fall of 2022. The proposed rule would, among other things, provide that it is an unfair method of competition for an employer to enter into or attempt to enter into a covenant not to compete with a worker; to maintain with a worker a covenant not to compete; or, under certain circumstances, to represent to a worker that the worker is subject to a covenant not to compete. The comment period would close 60 days after publication of the Federal Register notice.
