Spencer Fane attorney Helen Holden recently discussed a new proposed Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rule that will effectively ban the use of noncompete agreements in InBusiness Phoenix.
Her article, Coming Soon: A Nationwide Ban on Noncompete Agreements?, outlines the specifics of the FTC’s noncompete ban as well as the agency’s rationale for the proposed changes. Helen also anticipates legal challenges to the rule and provided advice to employers “in the interim.”
