Ethics, Antitrust and Whistleblowing

On June 21st, it was reported that three drivers filed a lawsuit alleging Uber and Lyft violated state anti-trust laws by colluding to fix wages they pay drivers, who are independent contractors. The lawsuit seeks class action status.

In a letter dated April 27th, 12 trade, industry, professional and other groups and associations sent a letter to members of Congress expressing concerns about four anti-trust bills.

In March, the U.S. Department of the Treasury published the 68-page, “The State of Labor Market Competition.”

That was promptly followed by U.S. Department of Labor and Department of Justice announcing a newly signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) “to protect workers from employer collusion, ensure compliance with the labor laws and promote competitive labor markets and worker mobility.” That included the “inappropriate” use of non-compete agreements.
