Federal Court Approves $415 Million Settlement of Employee Antitrust Claims Against California Technology Employers

FordHarrison LLP • September 04, 2015
Executive Summary: On September 2, 2015, a federal trial court in California approved a $415 million settlement of an antitrust class action filed against a number of Silicon Valley technology employers, including Apple Inc. and Google, among others. The settlement resolves a class action lawsuit filed by software engineers in May 2011, which claimed that the companies had conspired to repress the engineers' wages and job opportunities by sharing salary and benefit information, agreeing to pay caps among themselves, and agreeing not to hire employees away from competitors.
