The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on The DOJ’s “No-Poach” Agreements: Navigating Implications to the Year Ahead and Beyond

Event Synopsis:
Regulatory uptakes on anti-competitive restrictions in labor markets is expected to ramp up with the Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the lead. Recently, the DOJ filed Statement of Interest on several pending cases to provide courts with significant guidance on the analysis of “no-poach” agreements and clarified that alleged cases of “no-poach” agreements do not automatically warrant per se review.

With several regulatory developments, heightened enforcement stance, and notable case decisions, the future of the antitrust landscape in the labor market remains uncertain. Businesses become more vulnerable to potential antitrust violations. Thus, it is essential for employers to thoroughly understand the risks of naked no-poach agreements and to ensure compliance to avoid criminal liabilities.

In this LIVE Webcast, antitrust lawyers Matthew Modell (Shearman & Sterling) and Kenina J. Lee (Axinn) will provide the audience with a comprehensive discussion of the critical issues surrounding “no-poach” agreements. Speakers will tackle significant implications in light of the current and emerging regulatory and enforcement trends. They will also provide compliance tips and strategies in this evolving area of law.
Key topics include:

• No-Poach Agreements: Enforcement Trends and Updates
• Emerging and Current Developments in Antitrust Law
• The ‘Rule of Reason’ Standard
• Notable Cases
• Best Compliance Practices
• What Lies Ahead?
