The latest legal update from our US team considers the FTC’s ‘Final Rule’ on non-compete clauses in the US.

The Final Rule introduces significant changes to non-compete clauses as it provides that, with respect to most workers, it is an “unfair method of competition” for an employer to:

  • enter into or attempt to enter into a non-compete clause;
  • enforce or attempt to enforce a non-compete clause; or
  • represent that a worker is subject to a non-compete clause.
