FTC’s Noncompete Clause Ban: Revolutionary Move, a Mere Clarification, or Just a Dud?

Should you be applauding this FTC decision, concerned, or maybe have the viewpoint that it is a "dud" and won't mean anything?

The Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) recent ban on noncompete clauses has been discussed in offices, at trade shows, and anywhere business owners gather.

With some 6,000 employees working for Flagship, his perspective adds to the ongoing noncompete clause conversation. Should you be applauding this FTC decision, concerned, or maybe have the viewpoint that it is a “dud” and won’t mean anything?
