Antitrust Lessons From the "No Poach" Case in Silicon Valley

  • CVC-217, Capitol Visitor Center (map)

In 2013, the 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 us 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.

Keynote address by Representative David Cicilline (RI-01)

Panelists:

Gene Kimmelman, President and CEO of Public Knowledge

Sandeep Vaheesan, Legal Director of the Open Markets Institute

Leslie Overton, Partner at Alston & Bird, former Deputy Assistant Attorney General the DOJ Antitrust Division

Aiha Nguyen, Project Lead of the Social Instabilities in Labor Futures Initiative at Data & Society
