The antitrust lawyers at McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, are investigating allegations that rail industry powerhouses Knorr-Bremse AG, Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies Corporation (“Wabtec”), and Faively, S.A., violated U.S. antitrust laws by agreeing not to hire each other’s employees.

Employee non-solicit, no-hire, or “no-poach” agreements may be unlawful and may result in lower pay and loss of mobility. If you are a current or former employee of Knorr-Bremse, Wabtec, Faively, or any of their subsidiaries, please contact us to learn more about our investigation. U.S. subsidiaries of Knorr-Bremse include Knorr Brake Company and New York Air Brake Corporation.

We have experience prosecuting lawsuits against companies that engage in employee non-solicit and no-poach agreements. No-poach agreements may suppress employee wages and mobility. These illicit agreements deny workers access to better job opportunities, restrict employee mobility, and deprive employees of important information they could use to negotiate for better terms of employment. Antitrust laws require competitors to compete not only on the products and services they offer to consumers, but also for the employees they hire in order to offer these products and services.

On April 3, 2018, the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) filed a formal Complaint against Knorr-Bremse and Wabtec alleging that those companies (and, before it was acquired by Wabtec, Faively) entered into no-poach agreements in violation of the antitrust laws.

At the same time it filed the complaint against Wabtech and Knorr-Bremse, the DOJ also announced that the companies had agreed to terminate the unlawful agreements and settle the allegations.
