FTC Prohibits Most Noncompete Agreements Between Employers and Workers

In a 3-2 vote along party lines on April 23, 2024, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) approved and issued a final rule to take effect in 120 days prohibiting most noncompete agreements between employers and workers. The Commission says the new regulations will ensure that American workers have the freedom to pursue a new job, start a new business or introduce a new product or service to the market.

Avoiding Michigan’s Right to Work Legislation

Michigan’s Right to Work legislation (“Legislation”) was signed into law by Governor Synder on December 12, 2012.  The Legislation will become effective on the 91st day following the final adjournment of the 2012 regular session of the Michigan legislature (December 27, 2012). Unions are attempting to either renew or extend current collective bargaining agreements (“CBAs”) prior to the Legislation becoming effective, in an effort to avoid impact that the Legislation would have on union dues and participation.

Health Care Employers Not Required to Post NLRB Notice Until Further Decision from the Courts

health care employersPreviously, the Foster Swift Health Care Law Blog notified you of an NLRB requirement for employers to display notices about employees' rights to organize a union.  The notice requirement was delayed, and employers were not required to post the notice until April 30, 2012.  On April 17, 2012, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia granted an emergency motion for injunction pending appeal and for expedited consideration related to the notice requirement.  This was discussed in Foster Swift’s recent Employment, Labor & Benefits E-News.  In particular, it is important to note that this court's decision means that employers are not required to post the notice until the court rules on the NLRB's authority to promulgate such a requirement.  Oral arguments on this issue are expected to occur in September, 2012.  Foster Swift's Employment, Labor & Benefits E-News and Health Care Law Blog will keep you posted on this issue.
