Criminal Enforcement Against Employee No-Poaching Agreements

A Steptoe-sponsored event
November 1, 2017

Please join Steptoe's Antitrust Team on Wednesday, November 1, for an in depth discussion of criminal antitrust enforcement against employee no-poaching agreements. On September 12, two high-level officials of the US Department of Justice (DOJ), Antitrust Division confirmed the Trump Administration’s continued enforcement efforts against agreements among companies not to “poach” each other’s employees or on setting employees’ wages. Two such investigations are going on now, and more may arise. The Obama Administration’s decision to make violations criminal dramatically raised the risks for human resources and other senior company executives who set employee policies for their companies. In this webinar, we will delve into how these developments affect your business.
