NERA Director Dr. Elizabeth Newlon will participate in a webinar on “no-poach” agreement enforcement, hosted by The Knowledge Group. She will join fellow panelists Marguerite Sullivan of Latham & Watkins and Bonnie Lau of Morrison & Foerster to discuss the most recent regulatory and judicial developments, and offer the best compliance practices and litigation strategies to avoid risks and pitfalls.

Dr. Newlon will touch on several key topics, including:

  • The general model of monopsony in labor markets. How economists look at imperfect competition in labor markets.
  • Different types of no-poach allegations. Common threads across varying employers and industries.
  • Examples of the theories of classwide harm alleged by plaintiffs in no-poach cases.
  • Issues in demonstrating the classwide impact of an allegedly anticompetitive no-poach agreement.
