About 100 organizations, including the AHA, today urged the Federal Trade Commission to extend by 60 days the comment period for a proposed rule that would ban as an unfair method of competition contractual terms that prohibit workers from pursuing certain employment after their contract with an employer ends. Comments on the rule, which would not apply directly to not-for-profit entities, are currently due March 10. AHA believes that questions regarding noncompete agreements’ enforceability should continue to be left to the states. It plans to comment on the rule and work with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which intends to challenge the proposal.
