FTC Publishes The Center’s comments on the Non-Compete Clause Rule

Posted in News Publications

The Federal Trade Commission posted comments submitted by Georgetown’s Center for Business and Public Policy (CBPP) scholars Tim DeStefano, John Mayo, Robert Press and Mark Whitener.

The comments were in response to a proposed rule prohibiting employee non-compete agreements. By categorically prohibiting employee non-competes, the proposed rule would invalidate approximately 30 million contractual arrangements and create economic effects measured in the hundreds of billions of dollars annually.
