INFORMATION
Training Overview

Do your employees have non-compete agreements? Learn how the FTC proposed rule will affect your organization.

On January 5, the Federal Trade Commission proposed a new rule prohibiting employers from imposing non-compete agreements. This rule makes good on President Biden’s promise in 2021 to “empower workers to demand higher wages and greater dignity and respect in the workplace.”

The FTC estimates banning non-competes will increase workers’ earnings by nearly $300 billion and double the number of companies in the same industry founded by a former worker. How will this change affect your organization?

You need to understand the proposed rule to begin to take steps to implement its requirements while considering how more competition might impact revenue and profit.
