3 big noncompete ban wins for physicians

In January, the Federal Trade Commission proposed a rule that would ban noncompete contracts nationwide. Eighty-seven percent of physicians support the rule, according to a report from Doximity.

Here are three state noncompete bans updates Becker's has reported on since April 21: 

1. On June 20, the New York State Legislature passed a bill aiming to stop employers from entering into noncompete agreements with their employees. If Gov. Kathy Hochul signs the bill into law, any noncompete agreement entered or modified 30 days after the signature will be prohibited.

2. The Connecticut Legislature passed a bill amending the state's physician noncompete statute. Gov. Ned Lamont is expected to sign the bill.

3. Indiana's house of representatives voted in favor of a noncompete ban bill for primary care physicians, though it excludes specialty physicians.
