FTC Bans Noncompete Agreements Nationwide

The Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") recently voted to ban noncompete agreements at the federal level. California has generally banned post-employment noncompete agreements at the state level for many years. In fact, two new California laws that recently went into effect seek to: 1) further clarify the state's general policy against noncompete agreements in the post-employment context; and 2) punish employers who violate this general policy.

California employers should consult with employment attorneys to review their employment agreements to ensure compliance with applicable law.
