FTC’s Final Noncompete Rule: Developing Your Game Plan - McDermott Will & Emery

FTC’s Final Noncompete Rule: Developing Your Game Plan


The Federal Trade Commission’s new rule banning most noncompete agreements is set to take effect on September 4, 2024. While it remains unclear whether the rule will stand, employers should take steps now to ensure that critical business interests are protected if legal challenges to the rule are unsuccessful.

Join McDermott Partners Andrew Liazos, Brian Mead and Heidi Steele for a webinar focusing on practical actions that employers can take to mitigate risks to their businesses if noncompete agreements can no longer be used with most employees.

Discussion topics will include:

  • What should employers do between now and the noncompete rule’s effective date?
  • What types of restrictive covenants can be enhanced to replace noncompete restrictions?
  • What happens if noncompete agreements used to avoid ‘golden parachute’ excise taxes are no longer enforceable?
  • How do the practical next steps and review processes differ for public company employers versus non-public company employers?

Minimum continuing legal education (MCLE) credit is pending in California, Illinois and New York. A Multi-Jurisdiction Certificate of Attendance will be made available to participants requesting MCLE credit in all other jurisdictions, depending upon that state’s rules. To be eligible to earn a CLE certificate, you must attend the entire program. Credit for partial attendance will not be provided.
