Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
Employee Compensation Antitrust Litigation
Non-union managerial, professional and technical (MPT) employees of the major oil companies filed lawsuits under the Sherman Act (15 U.S.C. § 1–7) alleging that the companies, including Exxon, Royal Dutch Shell, BP and Chevron, illegally colluded to set the wages of MPT employees at artificially low levels by sharing salary, bonus and compensation data. Lawsuits filed by Former Exxon employee Roberta Todd and several other plaintiffs were reportedly settled in 2009 for an undisclosed sum with the defendants not admitting any liability or wrongdoing.
