Competition Law Issues in the Human Resources Field

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Gonenc Gurkaynak (ELIG), Ayse Guner and Ceren Ozkanl discuss Competition Law Issues in the Human Resources Field.

ABSTRACT: Competitor agreement not to solicit or hire each other's employees as well as agreements among competitors to poach a rival entity's key employees could be deemed as a violation of competition law principles (and in some jurisdictions, public policy doctrines). European and US jurisprudence shows that an agreement or merely the exchange of information concerning human resources data, such as wage/salary, among competitors could run afoul of competition law rules. As an area of competition law, these more settled forms of anticompetitive risk-bearing practices deserve meticulous and sustained attention from practitioners in the field.
