Silicon Valley Tech Giants Face Class Action over Salary Ceilings for Engineers and Programmers

- by

San Francisco, CA: An employment and salary fixing class action lawsuit has been filed in California alleging Adobe, Apple, Google and Intel have conspired to hire its engineers from each other's employee pools and knowingly shared salary data to establish pay ceilings.

The lawsuit allegedly follows on from a 2012 investigation by the US Department of Justice which found that these practices were also evident at Lucasfilms, Pixar and Intuit. According to a report by the New York Times, the DOJ' report suggests as many as 64,000 engineers and programmers were involved, which means the class action lawsuit could see billions in damages, if successful.

The plaintiffs are represented by Joseph Saveri of Saveria Law Firm in San Francisco,CA.
