Comments on FTC Proposal to Prohibit Most Non-Compete Clauses

The IAA has submitted a comment letter in response to the Federal Trade Commission’s proposed rule, which would prohibit most non-compete clauses. Our comment letter makes several recommendations that we believe would better achieve the FTC’s goals with less of a negative effect on advisers that use non-compete clauses in their employment agreements for a wide range of purposes to meet their regulatory obligations and protect their businesses, employees, and clients.
