Justice Dept. probing tech industry hiring practices
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The Justice Department is stepping up its investigation into several Silicon Valley tech companies.
They are concerned that companies like Apple, Google and Intel have agreed not to recruit each other's employees, in ways that violate anti-trust laws.
Officials at about a dozen companies plan to meet at the Justice Department over the next two weeks to defend their hiring practices.
