FTC RIN: 3084-AB74 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Non-Compete Clause Rule 

On January 19, 2023, the  Commission proposed the Non-Compete Clause Rule. 88 FRS 3482 (Jan. 19, 2023). 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 non-compete clause with a worker; to maintain with a worker a non-compete clause; or, under certain circumstances, to represent to a worker that the worker is subject to a non-compete clause. On February 16, 2023, the Commission hosted a public forum that examined the FTC’s proposed rule and provided an opportunity for interested parties to directly share their experiences with non-compete clauses. The comment period as extended closed on April 19, 2023, 88 FR 20441 (Apr. 6, 2023), Staff are reviewing the comments and proceeding with policy analysis.
