Antitrust Enforcement Developments—What Employers Need to Know
Recorded On: 02/18/2021
In recent months, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division has brought, for the first time in history, criminal charges relating to “no poach” agreements (in which competitors pledge not to solicit each other’s employees) and “wage-fixing” agreements (in which competitors set compensation). The Antitrust Division had warned it would prosecute violations criminally, rather than civilly as it has done in the past—so staffing firms and other companies need to ensure they have effective compliance programs.
During this webinar, attendees will learn
- Which antitrust laws affect staffing firms
- How enforcement of antitrust laws has developed recently
- How to spot antitrust red flags and improve compliance in employment practices
