blank

A Texas jury acquitted the former owner and clinical director of a home health care staffing company for conspiring with competitors to slash contractors’ salaries, backing government efforts to punish practices intended to harm workers a hit.

The ruling is the first in a federal criminal case related to job-fixing, after the Justice Department signaled six years ago that it could prosecute defendants over such matters rather than bring civil cases against them. President Biden last year ordered the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission, which share antitrust authorities, to better protect workers from wage-fixing and other measures that can limit competition in the job market.
