Lieff Cabraser partner Dean M. Harvey serves as Court-appointed Co-Lead Counsel for Plaintiffs in a consolidated federal class action lawsuit against Surgical Care Affiliates for violations of U.S. antitrust laws. The suit alleges that employee compensation and mobility were criminally suppressed at Surgical Care Affiliates via illegal agreements between SCA and its competitors not to compete for each other’s senior employees.
The civil class action lawsuit comes in the wake of a federal indictment charging SCA with engaging in two separate conspiracies with other health care companies to suppress competition between them for the services of senior-level employees, in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act. SCA owns and operates outpatient medical care centers across the United States.
We believe that in addition, beginning at least as early as May 2010 and continuing until at least as late as October 2017, SCA conspired with a company based in Texas to allocate senior-level employees by agreeing not to solicit each other’s senior-level employees in an illegal pact to suppress those employees’ salary and mobility. Our information also indicates that at least as early as February 2012 and continuing until at least as late as July 2017, SCA separately conspired with a company based in Colorado to allocate senior-level employees through a similar non-solicitation agreement that improperly restrained employee’s compensation and ability to freely move between jobs.
