Walt Disney, DreamWorks Animation SKG, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Sony Pictures Animation and Sony Pictures Imageworks Face Anti-Poaching Suit

DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., Walt Disney Co. and its units Pixar and Lucasfilm Ltd., and Sony Corp. units Sony Pictures Animation and Sony Pictures Imageworks are among the defendants in a potential class-action anti-poaching lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California. The suit alleges that the visual effects and animation firms "conspired to systematically suppress the wages" of its workers, depriving them of "millions of dollars which defendants instead put to their bottom lines". Pixar and Lucasfilm reportedly agreed not to cold-call each other's employees, to inform the other company when making an offer to the other company's employees and not to increase offers if a job applicant's current employer makes a counteroffer. Such comprehensive "no-raid" agreements eventually spread throughout the visual effects and animation industry and were enforced by human resources and recruiting executives of the defendants, according to the complaint. The suit was filed by former DreamWorks employee Robert Nitsch Jr. on behalf of affected employees who worked for the defendants from 2004 to the present. The plaintiffs are seeking several actions, including class certification, compensatory damages, a permanent injunction prohibiting defendants from anti-poaching methods and a trial by jury.
