These key changes include: 1) new criminal provisions to address wage fixing, no-poach and other employment-related agreements (to come into effect in one year); 2) more significant penalties and expanded private rights of action for abuse of dominance and deceptive marketing practices; and 3) a new anti-avoidance rule for pre-merger notification.
