FTC Extends Deadline for Comments on Workshop Addressing Non-Compete Clauses in Employment Contracts

For Your Information

Following a recent public workshop on non-compete clauses in employer-employee contracts, the Federal Trade Commission has extended the deadline for public comments from Feb. 10, 2020 to March 11, 2020.

The workshop considered whether there is a sufficient legal basis and empirical economic support to promulgate a Commission Rule that would restrict the use of non-compete clauses in employment contracts.

Interested parties may submit public comments electronically or in paper form on these topics or other related topics through March 11, 2020. For further information on the workshop and the public comment process, including instructions for filing comments in paper form and a list of additional suggested questions for comment, please visit the workshop website.
