As the Department of Justice both widens its scope and narrows its scrutiny regarding antitrust violations in the employment and labor context, a number of recent court decisions and jury verdicts have demonstrated this corporate conduct is in the cross-hairs.  We’ve seen cases involving no-poach agreements as well as wage-fixing.  Without the proper training and awareness for corporate leadership, human resources professionals, and all those involved in the hiring process, companies put themselves at unnecessary risk given the DOJ’s increasingly aggressive enforcement in this area.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Overview of the Sherman Act Section 1 and its progeny (including 2016 Guidance to HR Professionals) (12-minutes)
  • What are the recent actions that the government has taken, with case-by-case analysis, and what are the lessons we can learn from each? (24-minutes)
  • Antitrust leniency program and what to do if you discover an issue? (12-minutes)
  • How can companies stay ahead of these issues by educating their employees and creating robust compliance programs? (12-minutes)


Who Should Attend:  In-house counsel, attorneys, compliance, and other allied professionals interested in staying up-to-date regarding antitrust violations in the employment and labor context
