It is the policy of NJHA to scrupulously comply with all antitrust laws. These laws generally prohibit competitors from entering into agreements, whether express or implied, to limit competition. NJHA reminds users of to guard against posting any message that could be construed as a violation of these laws. Accordingly, and by way of illustration, not limitation, postings to the listserv regarding the following subjects should be avoided: prices, discounts, or terms or conditions of sale; wage, salary and benefit information; profits, profit margins or cost data; market shares, sales territories, markets or marketing plans; allocation of customers or territories; concerted action to encourage the selection or rejection of customers or suppliers; and any other postings, such as business strategies, that could be construed to impose a restraint on trade and inhibit fair and free competition in the healthcare industry. Note that even general price or fee discussions by competitors, if followed by parallel action among the competitors on pricing or fees, can lead to antitrust investigations or challenges.
