No Poach, Per Se: The Application of the Antitrust Laws to Employment Agreements

Program Number
Program Date

In this program, Brian Conklin and Michaela Spero of Clifford Chance discuss the application of the antitrust laws to employment agreements, with a specific focus on "no-poach" agreements. The course provides an overview of the antitrust laws and the enforcement thereof, as well as the different standards courts apply in evaluating antitrust violations, followed by an in-depth discussion of government actions challenging employment agreements as anticompetitive. In particular, the program will address the Department of Justice Antitrust Division's present-day position on no-poach provisions. The presenters will then discuss measures companies can take to reduce the risk of their employment agreements running afoul of the antitrust laws.
