Eric A. Posner, Cristina Volpin No-poach agreements : An overview of EU and national case law


No-poach agreements have received increased attention by competition authorities, especially in the United States, as part of a broader movement to address anticompetitive behavior by employers in labor markets.

Employers have also been accused of agreeing not to solicit or “cold call” one another’s employees, and of fixing wages and exchanging information about compensation. There are also vertical no-poach agreements, for example, between staffing agencies and the firms to which they supply workers.
