Yahoo! Finance published an article examining the Federal Trade Commission’s recently proposed rule to ban non-compete clauses for all types of workers. Gunster Shareholder Roger Feicht is quoted throughout the article as he offers his insight on this controversial issue.
Feicht points out that this rule could complicate contracts that have already been negotiated. For example, high-level employees often agree to stay with a company in order to receive certain benefits and incentives. In these cases, “Does the employee have to return them because they’ll no longer be governed by their agreement?” Feicht questions.
