    Agencies like the Federal Trade Commission, Department of Justice Antitrust Division, and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau have increased their enforcement on behalf of workers. They have also signed MOUs with traditional worker rights agencies like the DOL and NLRB, to use their combined authority to rein in power imbalances between firms and workers. Meanwhile, unions and worker advocacy groups have brought innovative lawsuits against firms that use anticompetitive practices, in combination with or in lieu of traditional workplace law claims. Panelists will discuss the doctrinal implications of turning to competition and consumer protection policies in the service of workers.
