Old Republic No-Poach Investigation
Girard Sharp is investigating potential claims on behalf of Old Republic National Title Insurance Company employees concerning so-called “no-poach” agreements through which multiple companies agree not to solicit, recruit, or hire each other’s employees.
Federal and state authorities have cracked down on these agreements in recent years, finding that they stifle labor market competition and deprive employees of potential employment opportunities.
If you worked at Old Republic, you may have a claim for relief.

More Information on the Old Republic No-Poach Investigation
On September 3, 2021, New York’s Attorney General reached an agreement with Old Republic National Title Insurance Company to end the company’s practice of using overly restrictive employment agreements.
In doing so, the Attorney General stated that Old Republic may be violating federal and state antitrust law by imposing agreements that restrict a company’s ability to hire employees even after their employment relationship has ended.
Federal and state authorities have concluded that these agreements stifle labor-market competition and deprive employees of potential employment opportunities. No-poach agreements are an old type of anticompetitive restraint among firms (they were discussed in Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations) and remain pernicious in today’s economy. Recent markets that have come under scrutiny in this area include the rail industry, medical schools, and fast-food franchises. The Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice continues to challenge unlawful no-poach agreements, and individuals subject to these agreements may also sue for relief.
