ACS Washington, DC: Antitrust Lessons From the "No Poach" Case in Silicon Valley

The U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, Washington, DC

In 2013, the U.S. Department of Justice brought an antitrust case against Silicon Valley tech firms for illegal collusion. The CEOs of these companies had agreed to not compete for each other’s employees, leading to lower wages and less freedom of movement for workers.

Join Public Knowledge and the ACS Washington, DC Lawyer Chapter for a viewing of the new documentary detailing the 2013 lawsuit, When Rules Don’t Apply, and a panel discussion on how we can address the shortcomings of antitrust law.
