Federal Trade Commission Proposes Ban on Non-Competes: Now What?

January 23, 2023 Noon - 1 p.m. CT

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. Join Godfrey & Kahn attorneys for a discussion on:

  • Details of the proposed rule and its impact in the employment and sale of business contexts
  • Potential alternatives to the proposed rule
  • The FTC rulemaking process and potential legal challenges to the final rule
  • The impact to your business if the ban is implemented
  • The growing importance of tailored restrictive covenants and trade secret protections
