A Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rule banning non-compete clauses is set to go into effect on September 4, 2024.

In short, the rule bans employers from entering into non-competes with workers covered by the rule. It also imposes an obligation on businesses to notify former employees and contractors with whom they previously entered into non-competes, that these agreements are now unenforceable.
