The Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ) has stepped up enforcement over no-poach/no-hire agreements under Federal antitrust laws. The DOJ recently tried two criminal cases against individual officers of companies accused of negotiating agreements with competitors not to recruit, solicit or hire each other's employees. The DOJ commenced additional prosecutions of these types of cases and we expect that trend to continue. As a result, it is important for businesses and the people running them to understand the risks involved in entering into no-poach/no-hire agreements and to tailor their practices to avoid ending up in the crosshairs of a DOJ criminal or civil antitrust action. This webinar will identify five important tips to avoid civil or criminal antitrust prosecution related to no-poach agreements.

In addition, the webinar will cover recent statutory developments related to the enforcement of non-compete and non-solicitation agreements in California and the importance of confidentiality or trade secret agreements to protect a business' competitive edge.

Dan M. Forman, Chair of CDF's Unfair Competition & Trade Secret Practice, will lead the discussion and answer questions on this important topic.
