Antitrust Training

Antitrust and Competition Law Online Course

Course Overview

Today’s legal and business environments make training on antitrust and competition laws more important than ever. In the last five years, the U.S. Department of Justice and European Commission have levied billions of dollars in fines and penalties – bringing new focus to antitrust issues in the workplace.

To employees, competition laws are broad and encompass areas and conduct that they rarely intuitively understand. Combined with the pressure to produce results, employees make decisions and take shortcuts that violate competition laws around the globe.

Antitrust and competitions laws are being enforced both in the U.S. and globally. Violations can lead to costly investigations, lawsuits, enforcement actions and – ultimately – expensive penalties and even prison for the individual and business leaders involved.

This course provides learners with an overview of U.S. antitrust law, explains common mistakes, and gives employees practical advice they can use. It also gives employees the guidance they need to understand competition rules and your policies.
