Hartley LLP is pursuing antitrust claims on behalf of current and former Samsung and LG employees in the United States. The complaint alleges that LG and Samsung entered into an illegal agreement not to solicit, poach or hire each other’s employees. This agreement limited workers’ compensation as it eliminated or limited their ability to secure competing job offers from the most likely alternative employer, and further limited worker’s mobility, benefits and options. Both companies are Korea-based electronics companies with large facilities in the United States.
If you have information relevant to the alleged agreement or specific information about circumstances that suggest Samsung and LG would not solicit or hire each other’s employees, please contact us.
