During 2018, many U.S. companies saw their employment practices come under intense antitrust scrutiny. On the federal level, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecuted multiple companies for entering into naked “no-poach” agreements, where companies that compete for the same employees agree not to recruit or hire each other’s employees. In addition, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), along with the Texas Attorney General’s office, brought an enforcement action against a therapist staffing company, its owner, and the former owner of a competing staffing company for participating in a wage-fixing scheme, where the defendants agreed to lower their employees’ wages to the same level and thereafter attempted to convince other competitors to do the same in order to avoid losing employees to companies that pay higher wages.
