Delaware County Chamber of Commerce Partners with Other Business Groups Urging Congress to Oppose Noncompete Rule
The Delaware County Chamber of Commerce joined business groups across the Commonwealth and Nation to urge the US Congress to oppose the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) proposed rule to impose a nationwide ban on almost all noncompete contracts. As stated in a letter signed by Trish McFarland, President of the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, the FTC lacks the constitutional or statutory authority to issue such a rule and, in attempting to do so, the agency is improperly usurping the role of Congress.
Contractual relationships are between employers and employees and this change by the FTC would invalidate millions of contracts around the country which will harm both employees and employers. For more information, please click here.
