How to bridge the gap between HR and legal to avoid exposure in the US and beyond
Effective HR departments are imperative to the operation of any company and functions including benchmarking and non-solicitation agreements serve an important need. However, increased scrutiny from antitrust regulators means that companies and staff that agree not to poach employees from others, or fix wages, are increasingly in danger of serious financial and even criminal penalties.
Join our Antitrust and Employment partners from the US and Europe (the UK and Germany) for a complimentary seminar on June 18 and 19 to discuss the current state of enforcement and to understand how to mitigate risk.
Among other things, we will cover:
- HR practices under the antitrust spotlight: why this and why now?
- When do legitimate non-solicitation clauses become illegal no-poach arrangements?
- Benchmarking: can exchanges of data amount to wage-fixing conspiracies?
- Practical takeaways for managing HR risks
