ADDITIONAL NOTE From ABA Antitrust Section Spring Meeting

At the ABA Antitrust Spring Meeting today, Marvin Price, Director of Criminal Enforcement, Antitrust Division, USDOJ emphasized that labor market cases (wage fixing and allocation agreements) continue to be  high priority for the Division.  Mr. Price noted that these collusive employer agreements cause real harm to employers who are directly affected in the wages they earn or the opportunities open to them.  I couldn’t agree more!  See, Cartel Capers, April 18, 2018,  Employee No-Poach Agreement Compliance Message:  Knock it Off!  Now!!; Cartel Capers, December 17, 2020 A Look Back at the Road to the Antitrust Division’s First Criminal Wage-Fixing Case.
