“Freedom to Compete Act” Aims to Wipe Out Most Non-Compete Agreements
In reaction to the recent proliferation of non-compete agreements, courts and legislatures are increasingly trying to find ways to limit their use. The latest attempt is at the federal congressional level.

The Act would amend the Fair Labor Standards Act to ban non-competes for most non-exempt workers.
