Abstract
“No-poach” agreements remain to be the U.S. government’s top antitrust enforcement agenda as shown by the latest advocacy efforts of the Department of Justice (DOJ). Just recently, the DOJ filed Statements of Interest in a number of pending lawsuits to clarify that “no-poach” agreements involved in those cases were not per se unlawful and should be examined under federal antitrust laws. Although the DOJ’s statements might help defendants in securing a case’s dismissal, changes in relevant antitrust doctrine can pose significant challenges. Furthermore, state attorneys general and private plaintiffs are expected to continuously challenge no-poach agreements in the context of state antitrust laws.

To help antitrust and human resources (HR) professionals understand no-poach agreement enforcement, The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide an in-depth discussion of the most recent regulatory and judicial developments during a LIVE Webcast. They will also offer the best compliance practices and effective litigation strategies to avoid risks and pitfalls.
