The FTC Non-Compete Rule: Answering Your Questions


On January 5, 2023, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced a proposed rule that, if enacted, would amount to a near-total, nationwide ban on the use of non-compete agreements.

The proposal has led to more questions than answers: Will the rule go into effect? If so, how can companies protect themselves? How will the rule affect existing agreements? Our panel of attorneys is ready to answer these questions and more. 


  • How the FTC rulemaking process works and how your organization can submit its thoughts on the proposed rule for consideration.
  • Whether the proposed rule applies to nonprofit organizations. 
  • How the proposed rule may affect other types of restrictions, such as non-solicitation and non-disclosure agreements and non-competes in the context of business transactions.
