In early January, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) proposed to ban non-compete clauses in all employment contracts. This proposed ban would also apply retroactively and affect current contracts that include non-compete clauses. ACEP fundamentally opposes non-compete clauses because they negatively impact emergency physician job security and future opportunities. The FTC is seeking comments on this proposed ban, and ACEP wants to include your firsthand stories about non-compete clauses in its formal comments. Submit your story using the QR code below.
