In recent months, federal and state regulators have actively focused enforcement efforts on “no-poach” or “no-hire” provisions used in the franchise world. The regulatory focus has wide-spread implications not just for the targeted franchisors and franchisees, but also for any company that may have provisions or agreements restricting the recruitment or the hiring of employees. Naturally, private plaintiffs are closely following the regulatory developments in this area, and they have been aggressively filing class actions seeking damages.
In this webinar (recorded on October 23, 2018), our speakers update you on the regulatory and private plaintiff activity in this area, explain the key economic principles and factors involved in such provisions and the private plaintiff class actions, and offer strategies to mitigate risks in the future.
