COVID-19 and Illegal Anticompetitive Conduct in U.S. Labor Markets

Although many individuals and businesses have demonstrated extraordinary compassion and flexibility in responding to COVID-19, the Department of Justice is warning that others may be using it as an opportunity to prey on American workers by subverting competition in labor markets, including by collusive wage fixing and worker mobility restrictions. Abusive and improper restrictions by companies and individuals involved in the hiring, recruiting, retention, or placement of workers like doctors, nurses, first responders, grocery story clerks, pharmacies, warehouses, other essential service providers, and medical travel and locum tenens temporary medical workers, risk civil and even criminal liability for their illegal acts.
