eBay Accused Of Violating Antitrust Laws

With as many qualified people in this country currently looking for work, it is hard to believe eBay has to poach employees from another company.

According to the complaint, which was filed by the U.S. Justice Department, eBay and Intuit had an agreement not to raid each other's businesses for talent. EBay, the online marketplace, is headquartered in San Jose; Intuit is based in nearby Mountain View. "This agreement harmed employees by lowering the salaries and benefits they might otherwise have commanded, and deprived these employees of better job opportunities at the other company," lawyers for the government said, in a copy of the suit obtained by Bloomberg.
