My clients aren’t surprised when I coach them on how to keep a valued employee. While they are certainly aware that we make money through placements, they more than appreciate the genuine effort I make to help them retain their most valued people.

More than 60,000 high-tech workers have a bone to pick with Apple, Google, Intel and several other Silicon Valley giants. In a class-action suit filed with the U.S. District Court of Northern California, workers with these companies claim that the late Steve Jobs and other CEOs conspired to keep their wages down by agreeing not to recruit talent from competing companies. The companies have called a judge’s order allowing the case to move forward ”manifestly erroneous.” The lawsuit, scheduled to go to trial in late May, seeks up to $9 billion in damages. Brought on behalf of about 64,000 programmers, software developers, digital artists and others, the suit centers on recruitment practices in one of the world’s leading technology sectors.
