On Thursday, January 5, 2023, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) proposed a rule that would ban non-compete agreements and preempt all state laws that are inconsistent with the rule. If implemented as proposed, employers will be required to rescind all existing non-competes with current and former employees and independent contractors.
