About the Program

In a landmark decision, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has given the green light to a final rule that prohibits most non-compete agreements between employers and workers. This development carries profound implications for businesses and employees alike, reverberating throughout competitive conditions in labor markets, mergers and acquisitions, employee benefits, and beyond.

Join our multi-disciplinary team as they dissect the ramifications of this ruling and provide invaluable insights into its implications for your organization.

Key discussion points will include:

  • A comprehensive overview of the FTC ruling and its far-reaching implications.
  • In-depth analysis of the exceptions and limitations delineated in the final rule.
  • Understanding the ripple effect on businesses, employees, and competitive markets.
  • Addressing the impact on traditional use of non-competes in mergers and acquisitions.
  • Addressing the impact on traditional use of restrictive covenants (e.g., forfeitures/clawbacks) in employee benefit arrangements.
  • Proactive strategies for ensuring compliance and mitigating associated risks, including ensuring compliance with state law and enhancing trade secret protections.
  • Exploring potential legal challenges and mapping out the future outlook.

This webinar will provide analysis and actionable guidance to help you navigate this evolving landscape with confidence.

Don’t miss this opportunity to stay ahead of the curve and gain a competitive edge in adapting to this pivotal regulatory shift.
