Antitrust Investigation – Surgical Care Affiliates LLC
Have You Served As A Senior-Level Employee For Surgical Care Affiliates Or Its Competitors Between 2010 and 2017?
Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is investigating class action claims on behalf of senior-level employees who worked for Surgical Care Affiliates or its competitors between 2010 and 2017.
On January 7, 2021, the U.S. Department of Justice issued a press release (“Health Care Company Indicted for Labor Market Collusion”), which, among other things, stated that “[a] federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment charging Surgical Care Affiliates LLC and its related entity (collectively SCA), which own and operate outpatient medical care centers across the country, for agreeing with competitors not to solicit senior-level employees, . . .. These are the Antitrust Division’s first charges in this ongoing investigation into employee allocation agreements.”
The indictment, according to the Department of Justice, further “. . . charges SCA with entering into and engaging in two separate bilateral conspiracies with other health care companies to suppress competition between them for the services of senior-level employees, in violation of the Sherman Act. 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. Beginning 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.”
