Non-Compete Federal Legislation - Comment Deadline Extended
Blue pen and a non compete contract on a clipboard. Noncompete contract is an agreement between employee and employer_ not to enter into competition in subsequence business effort. Legal form concept.
As reported in February, as many as 45% of family physicians have employment contracts that include non-compete clauses. As a result, the FAFP Board of Directors identified limiting the enforcement of non-compete clauses in physician contracts as a 2023 legislative priority, and has endorsed resolutions in this regard at both the AAFP and FMA policy making bodies. Please support the effort by submitting comments on the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) proposed regulation designed to ban non compete clauses in all employment contracts. The original deadline has been extended to April 19 so please consider submitting comments that include your experiences in order to make a meaningful impact. 
Capitol Update - Week 1
Family Medicine was definitely “in the House” on opening day of the 2023 Legislative Session with FAFP Board Chair, Dr. Carrie Vey, serving as Doctor of the Day at the request/sponsorship of Speaker Renner. Dr. Vey, FM Residency Director at Halifax, was joined by one of her residents Dr. Isaiah Cochran (PGY3), representing family medicine at a high level. A recap of the first week's happenings can be found by CLICKING HERE
