  • USA
  • 14 January 2021

In December 2020 the Antitrust Division of the US Department of Justice (DOJ) indicted an individual employer owner, for the first time, for agreeing with a competing owner to reduce the wages that their workers were being paid. Moreover, on 5 January 2021 the DOJ indicted a corporation for conspiring with two competing employers to allocate a medical employment market by agreeing not to solicit each other's senior employees. These rapid-fire developments are of critical importance to all companies.
