|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 437|
Comments:Recently, the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") has published a proposed Business Opportunity Rule that would apply to all business opportunities, including vending machine sales, medical billing, and direct sales opportunities, regardless of the entry fee. There are a number of aspects of the Rule as proposed that would have a very negative impact on recruiting by placing an undue burden on the Company, and our business partners. Shaklee Corporation has been in business for 50 years, we have been affiliated with Shaklee Corp. for 31 years and have never have given anyone cause to be concerned about our recruiting practices. This ruling would put an unfair burden on us and dramatically reduce our ability to function effectively in our business. Please do not pass this ruling!
