Labour markets: a blind spot for competition authorities?

Pascale Déchamps, Ambroise Descamps, Francesca Arduini, Célia Baye and Lola Damstra

Keywords: competition in labour markets; industrial policy; empirical analysis of concentration; merger control; antitrust enforcement

A recent topic of debate among economists and policymakers is whether labour markets should be of interest to competition authorities. High-profile cases involving non-poaching agreements have recently made the headlines in the USA, and labour markets were a key aspect of criticisms aimed at recent merger decisions in Europe. In parallel, academic research has provided new findings to fuel this debate. In this article, we shed light on the key elements of this discussion and explain how economic analysis can contribute to it.
