Wage Fixing

Employers cannot illegally collude with competitors to keep wages low. Our lawyers can help if you believe your industry is conspiring to suppress wages.

Wage fixing occurs when companies in the same industry conspire or agree to suppress employee earnings below the the market rate. These arrangements, referred to as "anti-poaching" agreements, harm employees’ livelihood and violate federal antitrust laws.

If you know or have reason to believe that your employer is sharing compensation information with a similar employer for the purpose setting wages low, you may be able to bring an antitrust claim. Moreover, if you know or have reason to believe that your employer has an agreement with its competitor not to hire its employees, you may also have a claim. Contact our employment attorneys to learn more.
