Attorney General Dana Nessel joined a coalition submitting comments in support of the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) proposed rule that would eliminate non-compete clauses in most employment contracts. She joined 18 other states in supporting the proposed national rule, which was led by California, New Jersey, and the District of Columbia.

In January, the FTC proposed the Non-Compete Clause Rule, which would bar employers from preventing workers from working for or establishing a competing business within a certain time period after leaving a job. The proposed rule concludes that non-competes are an unfair method of competition that can depress worker wages, reduce racial and gender equality, and creates legal hurdles for employees looking to advance their careers. Currently, the legality of such agreements is left to the states.
