Emerging antitrust issues for employers across the Americas

Watch the session recording here

The competition for talent remains fierce, and employers have a vested interest in protecting their trade secrets, confidential business information and investments. At the same time, lawmakers and regulators around the world increasingly are targeting employer agreements and practices that they contend unfairly limit worker mobility and competition.

Our DLA Piper attorneys from the US, Canada, and Latin America discussed key employment and antitrust developments across the region. Key topics included:

  • New limits on restrictive covenants, including the US Federal Trade Commission’s proposed rule banning most non-competes and other jurisdiction-specific developments
  • Antitrust enforcement targeting no poach, no hire and wage fixing agreements between employers, including amendments to the Canadian Competition Act taking effect on June 23, 2023
  • Tips for drafting and implementing restrictive covenants
  • Strategies to protect trade secrets and confidential information
