9:45 AM - Is No-Poach a Crime or Not? An Examination of Cartel Enforcement in Labor Markets

Cartel enforcement in labor markets continues to be a hot topic. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) continues to make it a top agenda item, despite some recent losses at trial. DOJ’s theory of harm that no-poach agreements are a form of market allocation subject to per se analysis has gained some traction in the courts, even if not with juries to date. DOJ has several trials coming up that may change their track record and that could impact how these cases are brought and tried in the future. Further, other jurisdictions are also considering whether to criminalize this conduct, including Canada and Portugal. This panel will discuss what to expect from cartel enforcement in this area, what to look for in the upcoming trials, and how to manage varying jurisdictional approaches to cartel enforcement in labor markets.
