Following a public comment period, the Federal Trade Commission finalized consent orders settling charges last week that two affiliated Michigan-based security companies and their owners illegally imposed non-compete restrictions on low-wage security guards who worked for them.

The consent orders against Prudential Security, Inc., Prudential Command Inc., and their owners, Greg Wier and Matthew Keywell, impose a number of requirements and restrictions, including a provision that prohibits them from enforcing, threatening to enforce, or imposing noncompetes against any employees.

The Commission vote to approve the final order was 3-1, with Commissioner Christine S. Wilson dissenting.
